Releasing ipipe as a separate package would have several advantages:

  * I wouldn't be forced to use bzr >;->
  * ipipe could have its own set of requirements
  * and be released on its own schedule

Being part of the IPython core has its advantages, but as long as ipipes
existence is documented in the core, a standalone should be no problem.

As ipipe is mostly interactive, ther currently are no tests. However
some parts of ipipe could be testet.
