OK, great.  back on-list.

I think Gary's arguments point to it being a top-level package, called 
'pyreadline' for now.  We'll use Ville's suggestion of a trivial readline.py 
which does 'from pyreadline import *' under win32.

The setup.py file will need to be adjusted so this does NEVER get added for 
any OS other than win32, for now.  If in the future we add *nix support here, 
great, but for now let's make sure we don't mess with the default readline.

Welcome!
