Ouch! I represent that remark!

OK, I've got my Leopard development system right here and I've got the  
Python 2.5.1/readline that we maintain for our science application.

print os.system("otool -L %s" % readline.__file__)
	/usr/lib/libedit.2.dylib (compatibility version 2.0.0, current  
version 2.9.0)
	/usr/lib/libncurses.5.4.dylib (compatibility version 5.4.0, current  
version 5.4.0)
	/usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current  
version 1.0.0)
	/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current  
version 111.0.0)
