Adam: My experiments were assuming that PyOS_Readline() only ever uses the basic implementation or the Readline library, in order to see if there was any consistency with how Python worked in common situations.

There is actually a test that waits for the interpreter prompt on stderr; see test_cmd_line_script.CmdLineTest.interactive_python(). I realized that changing this would have to be considered carefully, because it could easily break other code as well. It certainly should not be done in a bug fix release.

Anyway I am proposing a patch in Issue 1927 to fix PyOS_StdioReadline(), so closing this as a duplicate.
