This is cool.  We have a little script that we use to interact with our
object database (ZODB).  It's used to do ad hoc queries or maintenance
on the database.  Usually we run it with "python -i".  I installed the
files in the pyrepl distribution in site-packages and added a
__init__.py in order to make it a package.  Next, I added the following
lines to the end of the script:

    from pyrepl.python_reader import ReaderConsole
    ReaderConsole(globals(), 0, None).interact()

It works great.  Thanks Michael.

  Neil
