Well, if Ville is OK with patches, I'd say let's stick to that for now.  If we 
find over time that this becomes a significant bottleneck, we'll revisit the 
issue.  It's not that I don't trust you, but simply that I don't want to add a 
committer for every subcomponent, and having a few core developers who go over 
patches also helps ensure a little in the way of coding consistency.

But again, if it becomes a problem, we'll take care of it as needed.

And many thanks for this contribution!

I'd like to ask though, if I'm doing something wrong in trying to use it.  I 
simply read the 'ipipe?' docstring and typed the first example:

In [1]: from ipipe import *

In [2]: iwalk | ifilter("name.endswith('.py')") | isort("size")

It all seems to work (I saw a lot of network traffic, consistent with a 
directory traversal on our NFS-mounted filesystem).  But the curses browser 
doesn't show anything at all when it opens, and no error is printed.  It lists 
'0 objects' in the status line.  Am I missing something here?
