It's in trunk now. It's still a threads-based hack, in that ipython
mainloop runs in a thread, but now the mainloop is a twisted reactor.
See IPython/twshell.py. You can try it out by "python twshell.py".
kbdint and Exit seem to work.

I used the stuff from mtexp branch, so macros should work, and it
should survive reactor death (5 sec timeout as before). Now, I gotta
run, but someone might want to take a look at it.
