ARGH: I didn't realize (since my windows box died completely and I
couldn't test there) that 0.8.0 relies on the API from pyreadline 1.4.
 But pyreadline 1.4 isn't out yet because Jorgen has been busy this
week: there's a problem with its setup.py file that creates an
incomplete installer.

For now, the only solution is for win32 users to NOT upgrade.  I'll be
gone on travel for a few days, but I can sneak into the server to
upload pyreadline as soon as Jorgen (or anyone else who can test on
win32) updates its setup.py file to produce a proper installer.

I moved the win32 installer out of the way (to testing/) for now.

Huge apology about this.
