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.
