People Pay for Oracle?

I was utterly amazed when I had the pleasure of interacting with an Oracle database at work and realized that even the latest and greatest Oracle 10 command-line shell has no readline support.  Are we still in the days of vacuum tubes? Seriously people! Thankfully there is a spiffy utility called rlwrap which saves the day. It acts as a buffer between another interactive program and provides proper command completion and history.
