I'm reposting this here because you are not subscribed, and the ipython lists

Unfortunately I don't have access to a Windows box, and teh uncpythontools 
readline code is windows-specific (under linux, the GNU readline library does 
that).  So I don't really know where to even begin.  Gary Bishop is the author 
of the code, so perhaps he can offer some insights.

Sorry for not being able to help further.
