Looking a lot better now that I've found all the right pieces :-)

Using Jorgen's development version of pyreadline, and trunk IPython,
everything builds correctly and the Qt console runs fine. However, the
command line console (ipython3.exe) fails with an error. I've created
https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/842 to track this.
