gnu readline licensing?

Python provides a GNU readline interface... since readline is a GPLv3
library, doesn't that make python subject to the GPL? I'm confused
because I thought python had a more BSD style license.

Also, I presume programs written with the readline interface would
still be subject to GPL... might want to put a warning about that in
the python library docs.
