It's kind of orthogonal - so long as we leave the relevant parts of the
current wiki up, we can link to them. We can move that stuff to Github and
update the links at any point.

I suggest we use github pages, have www.ipython.org as the primary domain,
and ipython.scipy.org as a redirect to it. ipython.github.com would also
