though for me, at least *some* parts of readline do work with 0.10.2.
I've tested with pypy1.6 on a 0.10.2 virtualenv, and I get reasonable
tab completion and arrows/cursor handling.  History reverse search
with Ctrl-r also works, though not the more basic up-arrow behavior we
also enable.

Just some more data.
