Yes!

I can't comment the rest except for what
    .. function:: input([prompt])
states, which Davide surely have read himself.

Anyway it seems to be a good idea to replace parts of the code 
where such severe bugs can sleep for such a long time. 
This code will not be used automatically on, yes, *all* modern 
UNIX platforms (don't let me think on what "modern" means here). 

So if there are no dependencies i don't know of (but even without 
knowing i would think there should be none - this is readline), 
it seems that providing a simple Python-based fallback 
implementation, which will use functions which themselves will be 
used daily in real life, is a good idea.
