Yeah, we're trying to avoid 2.4 syntax where applicable. I can see why
this can be a problem when you want generators though... you'd have to
implement a custom generator instead of genexp.

One extra problem:

when curses in not available (which is the case on win32), I get

[environmentswitch]|1> from ipipe import *
exceptions.AttributeError                            Traceback (most recent call

C:\opt\environmentswitch\<ipython console>

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ibrowse'

The import should also work without curses.

Once these problems are fixed (and the indentation is converted to 4
spaces), I have no issues shipping this in IPython/Extensions.
