[IPython-dev] RFC: IPython.ipapi for "public" ipython API.

It's not immediately obvious where the extension points for ipython
are, so I figured we ought to have one module that user
extensions/config files would use to plug into ipython.
I'm of course thinking of
import IPython.ipapi as ip
ip.ipmagic("%alias ls ls -F")
def f(..): ...
# takes place in working ns.
ip.exec("from re import *")
It should be pretty easy to do (most funcs are just references to
existing funcs elsewhere), and it would help people willing to get
started quickly quite a bit.
