We are happy and our users seem to be happywith it as an external package. This also allow us to do quicker releases, changesour dependencies (and our dependencies are growing), basically leave us morefreedom.
And despite some people loving IPython and the Notebook, we are the first to admitthat the notebook is not the best tool for everything. We are still usingvi/emacs/nano/ed/$EDITOR/$IDE to program, and it is better suited for a lot of tasks.Where notebook files are hard to edit in text editor.
That being said we would love to get some IPython-shell feature inthe interactive python shell, like numbered prompt by default, and away to have the help syntax with `?` easier to hook into, instead of doingreg-ex transform on the input.
With the more an more increasing pain of deadline on window we are also lookinginto pypython and enable it by default in the IPython shell, there are a lot of really goodimprovement ideas for the plain shell that can be taken from that too.--M Yes I am aware of IPymd, but still you cannot break a class in between cells.
