Yes, win32 users will still need ctypes and win32all. But that's OK: those
are well-maintained packages (and ctypes is going into the python stdlib for
2.5, so that will be one less dependency).
Ville: when you bring it in, please make sure to call it winreadline, NOT
readline, so we don't shadow the stdlib readline on local imports.
