[PythonCE] execfile&input in pythonce2.3.4

Unfortunately in the current builds of python for PocketPC input and
raw_input don't work.
This is because the PocketPC console doesn't support them. Their was a
hack in previous builds (by Telion) - but it relied on C code that got
lost in the mists of time.

David Kashtan would *like* to be able to add support for it back in -
but doesn't want to have to rewrite the C.

It *should* be possible to fake it using Tkinter dialogs - but I've
never actually tried it.

I find it surprising that it's not possible - as python running in
'interactive interpreter' mode receives user input from a window. But I
know that in programming things are not always straightforward.
