I doubt it, it's not like they're kicking us out :)  I just want a
sensible solution from the DNS perspective, since ipython.scipy.org
will redirect to ipython.org, we don't want a circular redirect.

I don't know much about DNS... Is it possible to have ipython.org
point to github, but something like archive.ipython.org be elsewhere?
In that case, we can even host it at my dreamhost account, where I
control the DNS and have unlimited storage.

Yup, and I want to keep it that way.  Those should remain publicly
available for the foreseeable future, I think it's important to have a
long-term archival view of these things.
