I leave this to you. I'm satisfied when you are.

I definitely want to add this before the release. It's a nice addition,

Best solution is  to build fisql without readline if readline is not
available. I know it's something Nick is interested in seeing happen.
Time is something else.
fisql is a good tool to have:
1. Highly functional.
2. Works with Sybase db-lib, thus can expose errors in FreeTDS db-lib.
I agree it's getting to be time to release 0.65. Proababy should call it
0.70; it's a long way from e.g. 0.63.
Question about locale: do we now default the client charset according to
locale, using freetds.conf as an override? We should. Docs need updating
on this point too (note to self).
