Your egg was wonderful.  It was such an easy fix for readline on  
Leopard.  I have noticed that on a CentOS 5 system where I installed  
Python2.5, that I forgot to compile with readline.  Is there a chance  
your egg could be made to work for Linux as well?  I have the same  
readline problem on CentOS as I did on Leopard.  Of course I could  
quite being lazy and just recompile Python, but I am a bit scared as I  
have several daemons running Python2.5, and don't want to break  
production code.  Ideally it would be great to use your egg on Linux  
with virtualenv.
