A couple of weeks ago I posted a question on superuser.com about whether there is a way to get the same *very* convenient stepping-through-command-history behaviour in an interactive Python interpreter session as is possible in (at least) the bash shell with the Ctrl-o keybinding:
The interactive interpreter (and I mean the default one, not third-party choices like IPython) uses libreadline for its editing and history functionality, so it's really a question about libreadline you're asking.
I don't think so. I'm not an expert on readline, but it seems to me to be a Python bug.

Well, if there is a bug, then it should be reported on the tracker (and a patch uploaded, if possible :-)).
