[IPython-dev] IPyTables - simple table construction for IPython

This is quite cool!  You might want to develop it with an eye towards inclusion in pandas, a very nice table data package that already has some html representation of notebooks when using ipython.  

Perhaps this is already familiar to you, but if not, see, for example, http://nbviewer.ipython.org/urls/bitbucket.org/hrojas/learn-pandas/raw/master/lessons/01%20-%20Lesson.ipynb

I could help with the latter; at least I have code for pretty-printing tables in python in a terminal already.  (Can I clone a gist?  IIRC yes, but I never worked with gists so far.)

What about sorting by columns?  (I.e. spicing up the HTML version with appropriate JS magic?)
