It is some problem with the DOS box on Windows. I believe the standard input
and output get lost somehow. I just encountered it myself. Using the "python"
command is not required on other platforms--Linux, for example.

If anyone has a more elegant solution I would like to hear it. I hate
documenting "this way on Windows, another way everywhere else..."
