Do you mean
or are there other patches floating around?

I used the patch to make a small extension module:

Problems are:
- the code has to be compiled with MSVC-2003 instead of MinGW, probably
  because MinGW  uses an incompatible Microsoft runtime library (that
  is the reason why I made it a separate module)
- the code is still line oriented: it works if the line after the prompt
  in the Python interpreter is blank.  Hower, PyOS_InputHook does not
  get called when the user has typed some characters or after a
  raw_input() prompt.
