[IPython-dev] ShiningPanda

We should probably add builds of the docs and sdist/bdist if we can,
so we catch breakages of those (like the most recent one), which devs
who use `setup.py develop` often miss. If possible, we should also
include tests run from both `setup.py install` and `setupegg.py

If we find we like Shining Panda (or CI in general) enough, it could
be beneficial to use it as a way to be more conservative/automatic
about test breakages.  I see two principal approaches to this:

1. use master as we always have done, but add a 'stable' branch, which
is equivalent to master, but strictly enforces that tests pass. stable
would be generated from master automatically on confirmation that
tests pass.

2. Set up the CI server to merge and test all open pull requests, and
instruct reviewers to check this status before merging.  This would be
similar the model in sympy's slick http://reviews.scipy.org.

1. has the advantage of being automatic rather than voluntary (less
vulnerable to "There's no way this tiny change would break anything"),
but 2. fits better in our current pattern.
