The home/end/del keys don't work as expected in the jython commandline
console. Home/End insert text rather than jumping to the start/end of
the line. Del does a backspace (delete to the left) rather than a delete
to the right as expected.

Is this on Windows?

We can customize some (if not all) of these keys with the jline 
keybindings file:

http://fisheye3.atlassian.com/browse/jython/trunk/jython/src/org/python/
util/jline-keybindings.properties?r=6326

If you want to try tweaking these settings, Jline also reads this 
configurartion file from $user.home/.jlinebindings.properties

This is how Jline maps these keys on windows (POSIX is different):

            case DELETE_KEY:
                return CTRL_QM; // translate DELETE -> CTRL-?
            case HOME_KEY:
                return CTRL_A;
            case END_KEY:
                return CTRL_E;

No input from user in nearly three years. No reply to pjenvey questions.

We need input from the user, or we should resolve this issue as "out of date".

sure, out of date. Possibly an update to a newer jline will help, but we'll do that even without a bug to prompt us.
