package/readline: disable bracketed paste by default
As of readline 8.1, "bracketed paste" is enabled by default. However, the feature causes control characters to appear in captured (telnet) session output. This can throw off pattern matching if the output is to be processed by scripts. Let's keep the previous default of leaving this feature disabled and provide a configuration option for users to enable it.
