In a previous discussion with Michael Foord on the user list we talked 
about exposing a way for changing the default location for the 
pyrereadline config file. Part of the solution to this problem, as I see 
it required a change in IPython/rlineimpl.py. I have attached the 
proposed patch from that discussion. The second part is providing a 
config option somewhere in ipython but we could leave that for later.

Otherwise I think the functionality is working fine now. However I have 
not looked at installation issues in a while. Like which configfiles 
should be installed. Do we just overwrite any readline.py file in the 
site-packages dir? Or should we leave that file for manual installation?

I'm also in the middle of a change of computers now so my access to a 
windows computer is a bit limited. This should be done by friday.
