[IPython-dev] IPython1 on PS3/YDL

I expect IPython to "just work" on the PPE, which would provide a good 
environment for exploring the Cell's possibilities.  I think it would take 
some work to enable IPython to manage the six available SPE's.  The SPE's 
need to be programmed in C and standard Python to run efficiently if you did 
a straight port to the SPE.  NumPy and PIL are obvious fits for the SPE 
architecture, but processing non-array data structures takes some thought.
