Great work, bobf. :)
I've been using bpython from time to time for a month now, so I can
only appreciate the fact that bpython is developing. I think that with
that speed of development bpython will substitute ipython as my
everyday python console in the near future (3-4 months).

P.S. I think you should of cc'd this announcement to python-announce-list. ;)

He's got a heart of a little child, and he keeps it in a jar on his desk.
