[IPython-dev] igrid

I've checked in igrid, the wxPython-based ipipe browser done by Nik
Tautenhahn.

We've tested igrid on Linux with wx 2.6 and wx 2.8 and on Windows with
wx 2.7 and 2.8. igrid will be used as the default browser if wx is
installed on the system, so testing it should be rather simple:

In [1]: from ipipe import *
In [2]: ils

This should give a directory listing in a wx window.

(A short description of the basic ipipe functionality is available at
http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/UsingIPipe)

I guess scrolling speed still requires a little work, and igrid
currently doesn't have all the commands that ibrowse has, but it should
be enough to test the functionality.

Help is available as an HTML file, but the setup script has to be
updated so that the HTML and the CSS file gets installed.

Please give this a try. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Servus,
   Walter
