Summary: Added support for custom readline functions

Initial Comment:
This patch allows for binding a key or keyseq to a custom function named custom. A custom handler can be registered and will be called by readline when the registered sequence input.

Example:

rl.py
--
import readline

def handler():
    print "need some help?"

readline.set_custom_hook(handler)
readline.parse_and_bind("\"?\": custom")

text = raw_input("type ? for help# ")
--
