[IPython-dev] 0.9 beta, anything left?

I wanted to make the 0.9 beta tonight (well, last night...) but I've
just burned several hours trying to track an intermittent failure in a
Twisted-using test that I can't seem to pin down.  Since the problem
is only on a single test, I'm giving up for now.  But I just committed
the last critical piece of testing machinery that gave me a hard time:
the ability to correctly execute in docstrings tests that probe
ipython-specific features, like complete(x) where x is in the
namespace.  This requires a delicate dance with nose and doctest, but
I think I finally got a solid solution.

The sugar is still missing, so for now the test suite will be really
only for developers, but hopefully next week I can add a user-visible
layer that makes it easy for users to run and that handles gracefully
missing components (like twisted, guis, objc, etc).

For now I need to get some sleep, and I'm running very badly behind on
things for scipy.  So if anyone has anything pending please respond to
this email and I'll deal with it when I get up.  Otherwise I'll cut an
0.9 beta and shift gears immediately to the scipy tutorial material
for a few days.
