https://bugs.python.org/issue13501 added configure --with-readline=edit support so that the readline module can build and link against libedit on any platform instead of only using libreadline.

Building Python that way on Debian Linux and running test_readline results in a variety of test failure for me:

```

I suspect these are just behavior differences in the library and some tests need to be skipped or test alternate behavior in this situation?
