Hi Jorgen,

you may want to work a bit on the setup.py: after you refactored
pyreadline, you didn't do anything at all with setup.py, and currently
it's completely broken.

You can see for yourself by running

setup.py sdist

and then unpacking the resulting tarball.  This is all it contains:

I noticed when I tried to reproduce the reported post-install bug
reported by N. Pernetty, and installing your pyreadline gave a crazy
ipython crash at startup.

Win32 users can still run 0.8.0 with their current pyreadline 1.3, and
upgrade to 1.4 when you get a chance to fix the installer.

Cheers,
