bits-829 released with these changes:
The "lines and pages" release.
Fix readline for the case of multiple terminals with different sizes
In particular, this fixes readline when simultaneously outputting to an 80x24 serial terminal and an 80x25 VGA terminal.
readline: Add Ctrl-Z as an alternative EOF
Useful both for users of Python on Windows and as a workaround for some systems which had trouble recognizing the Ctrl-D key combination.
Sort and deduplicate readline completions
Python's rlcompleter generates duplicate completions in arbitrary order, counting on readline to sort and deduplicate them. Do so in rlcompleter instead.
Support tab completion of expressions using subscripting with 
When completing, sort completions starting with '_' last.
The current completion display goes through completions sequentially, so sort
Rewrite pydoc's pager to work on a BITS terminal
pydoc went through various contortions to detect a proper pager, including using the tempfile module (which BITS doesn't have) to create a temporary file that it didn't actually need. Pull out its ttypager (which almost works as-is) and rework it to run on BITS terminals (plural), with a few enhancements for usability.
Use the new ttypager to view logs, allowing page-up and quitting
This one goes out to anyone who has ever viewed a huge logfile and ended up rebooting rather than paging through it all; we felt your pain.
README.txt: Rewrap to 77 character columns to avoid triggering GRUB word wrap
Use the new pager to show README.txt
