Mark, I'm not sure I understand what you saw but the patch script will cause a Python crash as part of its testing so that is to be expected.  You should not have to run the script using sudo.  This script also only applies to Pythons installed from python.org (or otherwise installed into /Library/Frameworks).  Please check which python you are using.  Using whatever command name you enter to start the failing python, try the following (I'll assume you use "python2.7"):

type python2.7
which python2.7
python2.7 -c "import sys;print(sys.version)"
python2.7 -c "import sys;print(sys.executable)"

The value for sys.executable should be:
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python

In any case, you could manually rename _readline.so as shown in one of the earlier messages (substituting "2.7" for "3.3").  Or you could install 2.7.6rc1.
