IPython does have a function for this, too, on UNIX systems with
curses (sympy also uses curses on UNIX but also has a Windows
implementation using ctypes and the Windows API). I also found another
UNIX implementation that only uses the fcntl and termios modules,
which may be more ubiquitous than curses.
