[Rd] Wish/RFC: ReadConsoleEx

Would there be any interest in a patch to introduce "ReadConsoleEx,"
analogous to the WriteConsoleEx? The idea would be to pass the prompt
type and browser level to applications implementing a user interface
to make it easier to implement features like the OS X GUI's history
feature where continue prompts are appended to the history entry
rather than generating their own entry. If so, would people prefer:

ReadConsoleEx(...,int prompt_type,int browser_level)


ReadConsoleEx(...,signed int prompt_type)

where 0 = normal, -1 = continue and > 0 = browser level?
