I merged the sconfig branch into ipython1b.  The tests aren't run
automatically at the moment, so do:

nosetests -v --with-doctest --doctest-tests IPython.config

to make sure everything is OK.

I wrote a first implementation of round-tripping, so a person can now:

a) Instantiate a new configuration
b) Update the configuration from a file
c) Modify the configuration
d) Dump the configuration back to file

The file writing is done using ConfigObj.  The one thing I haven't
tried yet is to write back to the same file I read from (to see
whether comments and structure are preserved).
