Hmm, well I didn't get very far :-( That's pretty complicated code...

Is there any way to ask the pyreadline developers about this? Is
pyreadline still maintained? It seems to be linked to IPython (insofar
as the readme says it's in the "IPython git repository" and the
homepage is on the IPython site) but there have been no changes in
over a year. There's also another version, pyreadline-ais, that seems
to have been created as a result of no movement on a particular PR...
