So Jupyter isn't a fork or something that's going to force historic
users of iPython to choose one or the other at some point. I guess
that's my biggest issue, I don't want to be going down the road and
have to pick a fork, or I guess, if I do HAVE to pick a fork, I want
to know which one to take. It sounds like with what you said, that
these projects are going to working to integrate rather than divest.
That sounds good to me :)
