Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com> added the comment:

Some notes: The system python on OSX 10.5 and 10.6 is linked to libedit, not GNU readline, and doesn't seem to contain patches that convert stdlib usage of readline APIs to the correct way to bind keystrokes to action with libedit.

This results in failure to use libedit at all.

AFAIK this also affects the generic stdlib when linking libedit, which is supported in 2.6.5, 2.7 and 3.2. Therefore adding more versions.

versions: +Python 2.6, Python 2.7, Python 3.2
