I'm not aware of anyone using readline with Twisted. A couple of options
spring to mind:
- use curses (see doc/examples/cursesclient.py for an example of using
curses in Twisted) to make your own readline-like functionality
- run readline in a thread, and get it to call
reactor.callFromThread(something.gotStdinLine, ...) everytime a user
- just write a GUI interface, and forget readline ;)
