Maybe it's a bug.  (See below.)  Have you checked the tracker?  Have
you posted to python-list?  That's a better place than here to get
that kind of information.

The people on this list (and on python-dev) probably don't pay much
attention to questions on superuser.com, unless they're the kind of
people who hang out on python-list.

Sorry for not being much help, but after trying the obvious (read the
GNU bash manpage, grep the output of "bind -p" to find out what C-o
does, check that python does link to "True GNU" readline on my
platform, try python, and when that didn't work, restart python after
doing "bind -p >> ~/.inputc", which didn't work either), I don't know.

It *might* be a bug, or you could file for an RFE if it's by design.
