[IPython-dev] New Twisted based server that works with IPython TextMate bundle

Hi Brian and list,

As the original author of the ipy_vimserver stuff, I read the textmate
bundle announcement with a bit of concern, because that code was just not up
to date with modern Ipythons.  So I'm really glad Brian did this, because I
had been looking to do something like this for quite a while, but hadn't had
the opportunity to learn the Ipython internals with the twisted integration.
Its a load off my mind, particularly since this is well done.

Note: This should just work with the vimscripts I wrote to go with the
ipy_vimserver stuff originally.

I can see this being useful with an emacs plugin as well (I mean really, who
doesn't like to control the interpreter from the editor :)  Perhaps this
module could be called ipy_commandserver or similar, and ipy_vimserver could
just go away.

Another thing I had been thinking, even more genericizing this, is: Does
Ipython allow for multiple frontends on the same interpreter? It seems like
it may with the notification framework stuff, but like I said, I haven't had
a chance to really keep up with the internals.
