I want to know the answer to this as well. My reason is, I
want the Anygui curses binding to disable itself if it
finds that it's being imported from an interactive shell,
since this has, er, unfortunate side effects.

FAQ-reading and random flailing about with my Wand of Google
have not been productive thus far...
