sqlcl Ctrl+C handler

there is a difference in handling Ctrl+C keyboard signal between older and new sqlcl versions.

Now pressing Ctrl+C ends sqlcl tool. In earlier versions pressing Ctrl+C  didn't terminate sqlcl tool.

Could you bring the old behaviour back ? I think it was better before, it was consistent with sqlplus in unix / linux Ctrl+C - as it never close the tool, but only breaks the line.

Or maybe there is a way to customise the Ctrl+C handling in sqlcl via some kind of parameter / settitng ?
