This is *fantastic*!  Many thanks, Min!  I'll be mostly offline for a couple
of days (that workshop with jdh) but this is very, very cool.  I know you've
put a ton of work into it, so thanks a lot.

Are we still on for the p4s presentation next week?  Could you send me
off-list a title/abstract so I can post the announcement?  I think with the
architecture we have now and these preliminary results, it's more than
enough for a great talk.

I'm almost done with fixing the long-standing bug (basically since ipython's
birth) of not having any interactive tracebacks.  Thanks to Robert for the
linecache idea, it's now working great.  That will make the multiline client
vastly more usable for real work.
