Probably yes. But they ship bash with readline enabled... oh well,

If PyRepl was fit for inclusion (sigh) that would indeed be nice :)
Just point your web browser at http://www.python.org/search/ and
look for "program", "doesn't", "work", or "my". Whenever you find
someone else whose program didn't work, don't do what they
did. Repeat as needed. -- Tim Peters, on python-help, 16 Jun 1998
