I haven't had a chance to play with the new server yet, so this is
just idle chat...

Please forgive my Twisted newbie-ness, but why not use an
IProcessProtocol? I realize that running a service on a socket lets
multiple editors connect, but is that really a likely use case? If
you're really planning on having multiple clients, don't you have to
end up replicating (or using) all of IPython.kernel to deal with the
semantics of multiple clients connecting to an IPython instance?
