New submission from Conrad.Irwin <conrad.irwin at gmail.com>:

At the moment there is no way of getting the current pre_input_hook out
of the readline module, so applications cannot set_pre_input_hook
without possibly over-writing users settings (or other parts of the
applications settings) I have attached a patch that implements this

It is probably not very useful in many situations, but I am now using it
to maintain my normal custom auto-indenting python prompt in a library
that allows me to edit arbitrary strings using readline. A better way to
implement this might be to
