I'd like to welcome Chris Drexler to the list, whose message is attached
below. He contributed readline packages for Win32 users with the CygWin
compiler. Thanks a lot.
I've added his packages to the usual download directory:
Since I don't have a Windows environment to test this with, all comments from
other users are welcome. I did take a look inside the tarballs and it looks
very reasonable, but I can't test it directly.

Dear Fernando Pérez,
I really love IPython and I'm using it togehter with wxPython and scipy on
Linux (at home) and WinNT, soon XP (at work :-( ) The biggest draw back was
the lack of readline support for NT. After some unsuccessfull attempts I
managed to build a readline module based on readline-4.0 which I use together
with Python 2.2 from ActiveState. There are still some issues concerning the
pageing because of the missing curses support but that's not so important to me.
As I'm missing appropriate donwload space I wanted to ask you if I can send
you the tar.gz file so that you can put it somwhere near the IPython
distribution. Its ~850kb (because of some original packages included).
If your're interested, please tell my how send you the file
