Done on my branch.

Testing ++. Especially in situations that you are not familiar with,
that's where you find the bugs.

I am not sure I will be able to get the testing done under Vista. I have
been fighting both with XP and Vista for a good chunk of the afternoon
and the evening to try and get ipython installed and the tests running.

I can't get the tests running under XP. The error is incomprehensible (
importing IPython fails, but only in the tests), this might be due to a
screwed up box). I would be interested in testing your branch, but I
can't get bzr working under XP.

Still trying for Vista, but I gave up for XP.
