Just to make sure it's 100% clear: you didn't need to install
pyreadline in the first place.  Under Linux, python ships out of the
box with readline support, pyreadline is meant to provide equivalent
functionality to win32 systems.

If there was anything in the docs that led you to think you needed
pyreadline, please let us know so we can correct the confusion.
