Crashes horribly... Could you please be more specific?  Without a traceback, 
it will be very hard to know what's going on here.  Feel free to post the full 
traceback, or if you get an ipython crash report post that.

Note that if they decided to implement the completion protocol in a manner 
very different to GNU readline, it will be pretty much impossible for me to 
make it work.  But I know that ipython works ok with Gary Bishop's python 
tools, which include readline and color support, so perhaps that might help you.
