I'm not sure if this is acceptable for you, but you can simply remove the
commandline stuff and simply ask the user with raw_input(). This is still a
textual UI, but it probably requires least changes. You could even add
an "--interactive" switch regardless of the target environment and then
create an MS Windows batch file that simply runs the Python script with
that switch.
