I think this ought to work for some platforms:
istty = sys.stdin.isatty()
istty = 0
import win32file, win32con
hstdin = win32file._get_osfhandle(sys.stdin.fileno())
modes = (win32file.GetConsoleMode(hstdin)
Unfortunately, GetConsoleMode, SetConsoleMode, and associated
constants don't seem to be included in win32all yet!
Any opinions expressed are my own and not necessarily those of Roundpoint.
