[IPython-dev] Curses Frontend

It looks to me like ipipe is on deathrow for IPython 0.11, and in my 
version of 0.11 it crashes occasionally. It has some interesting 
functionality, but if its not going to be part of the main distribution, 
support for it will have to wait. I'm also a very long way from getting 
any sort of curses frontend working, and that's definitely highest 
priority: basic functionality.

However, I'm definitely going to keep in mind that others may wish to 
use curses from within the curses frontend; once the main curses 
frontend is working, I'll think about how that may work.
