most odd - approximately all linux distributions ship with python compiled
with readline, and i've never seen any problems in those or manual
ps. anyone know if there's anything new wrt the license story? last i
heard the respective lawyers were still out on the subject. it would
be nice to be able to distribute readline-enabled binary python builds
