OK, well, apparently posting a question here means I need to go back
HelpDesk *one* more time, because I just found the answer.  Or at
part of it.  In the future I will keep track of how many searches
launched, write up the question, then do another round of searches
posting.  Sorry, folks.

In case anyone reading this is still wondering, the raw docs on the
question are in the MrEd Graphical Toolbox Manual, Chapter 2.

I might still benefit from other doc pointers, of course.

And I still don't know the answer to the question about readline.
