Great. This should also make the windows ipython experience much closer to
the linux one: tab completion (and all the other readline-based features) and
coloring for code and tracebacks make IMHO half of the ipython strength. I
hope this works easily now, so that Windows users can benefit from all of it.
If it works for you, I would greatly appreciate if you could briefly summarize
what the necessary packages/requisites are, so I can document it in the
manual. Since I don't have access to Windows, I have no way of doing the
process by myself.
Best regards, and thanks in advance for all your help.
