[IPython-dev] unbundle libraries

Hi list,

I read this list now for a while (and I am the package maintainer in
fedora), and started working on ipython now...

There is a current bug in fedora, because ipython bundles libraries
[1], what is not allowed. So another one from fedora and I worked on
unbundle everything, so the system ones can easily be used and you
still don't require a hard dependency on all the libraries.

This work is done in the github repository:

Please have a look and hopefully pull from there :)

Just a note:
The decorator module was a bit tricky, because some functions was
marked as deprecated to 'import *' won't work. I import the
update_wrapper from functools instead, as upstream suggests.
This will require python 2.5 at least, but that won't be a problem,
because I ought to remember, that you already require that version.

Am I right?
