Agree. I use rlwrap abilities to edit command line only for
one-liners. For the others I use vim.

What I like in rlwrap is it's ability for word completion. I.e. I
created sql.dict file with sql keywords and words like dba_role_privs,
etc. and run 'rlwrap -f sql.dict sqlplus'.
After that, I type 'dba_ro' and press <tab> to complete it to
dba_role_privs (the same way as in my vim editor).
