[IPython-dev] Separating the notebook from the file manager+text editor+terminal

I also agree on the modularity... with the code base getting bigger and
bigger it would be very useful to have the pieces split, and I think that
having separate repos is a necessary but not sufficient step towards a real
split. I think that having separate repos makes easier to make devs/users
to work in specific parts as a team as Thomas pointed out before...

Regarding the second Bryan's point, I also thing that our notebook
server should
run a fixed and consistent set of components for all users. Maybe my vision
is a little biased here, but I think the set of notebook, terminal,
text-editor and dashboard is the minimal and well balance set of tool to
completely achieve the majority of our user's uses cases, despite the
variability on the use cases community...

About the dashboard, we can (and have) to make it better, and people will
continue try to push toward a file manager, because it is the natural
evolution... and because probably everyone would like to have something
like that in their browsers. In any case, if enough people want to work on
that, as a separate repo, we can probably embrace them and replace the
dashboard, but it is clear, at least for me and I think fo all, that a
full-featured file manager is beyond our scope...
