And for clarity, currently 27 (only) will be built against readline unless
installed with +libedit, while all others will build against libedit unless
installed with +readline. All users can install pyNN-readline as an
alternate route to avoid the libedit issue (terminal state fouled on exit.

This does not sound like the other problem you are describing (locking up
-- what do you mean by that?)

Sorry for the confusing state. There is not broad agreement on how to
proceed, so we're currently in a bit of limbo. Some would like to dig in
and identify the problem. I think that's great, but I don't have the time
to work that out currently, so I moved 27 (likely broadest used) to build
against readline (so few users run into this issue) until this is worked
out. See the ticket for discussion or to chime in!
