[IPython-dev] Making small kernels just got easier

We just merged a PR that makes it much simpler to write wrapper kernels in
Python for other languages. Simply subclass a class in IPython, and define
a few methods and attributes, as described here:

For instance, I've just written a kernel for bash (no completion, but it
can run commands):

To try this out, get the latest IPython development version, then pip
install bash_kernel. Run ipython qtconsole --kernel bash to start it.

Best wishes,
