commit 1830e30762c53b88057e33b6044660a3da136099

    Give a name to the TUI SingleKey keymap
    
    Readline 8.0 has a feature that lets an application name a keymap.
    This in turn makes it simpler for users to bind keys in keymaps in
    their .inputrc.
    
    This patch gives a name to the TUI SingleKey keymap, so that
    additional bindings can be made there.  For example:
    
        $if gdb
        set keymap SingleKey
        "X": "echo hello\\n\n"
        $endif
    
    The call to rl_initialize, in tui_initialize_readline, had to be
    removed so that .inputrc was not read too early.  Note that Readline
    explicitly documents that this call is not needed.
