The biggest change for Sage is going to be that customizing IPython
now uses a richer but also more complex configuration system:


It appears a bit daunting at first, and it does have a few rough
edges, but by and large we've found that it works very well in letting
us configure all the many moving parts IPython now has while using the
full power of the Python language (since the config files are regular

It's *possible* that we've removed/forgotten something that Sage used
in its command-line client.  If that's the case let us know, as we
didn't intend to remove any of the features that made the kind of
aggressive customization Sage does impossible.  Such a change would be
just an accidental oversight, so just report it and we'll do our best
to restore any missing functionality.
