This script uses Term::Readline. Term::Readline sets the editing mode (vi/emacs) based on the user's .inputrc, or the
$EDITOR environment variable.
This script will set
$EDITOR based on
$PERL_READLINE_MODE or bash's
$SHELLOPTS variable. Any .inputrc
"editing-mode" declaration still takes precedence.
