[IPython-dev] Patch for paren completion glitch

I managed to make "(foo)bar" completion work for filenames, without 
breaking completion for space characters (or anything else I could try 
out quickly). It seems to work on Linux at  least - haven't tried it on 
Windows yet, I thought it might be a good idea to show the patch for 
some quick feedback before that.

As you can guess it's brutally hackish, but I figure that's the way it 
goes with readline ;-).

It should be trivial to add the functionality for other delimiter chars. 
I used shlex.split directly, it should be changef to shlex_split from 
magic for bacwards compatibility but I thought I'll do it later on...
