[IPython-dev] Leo's ipython plugin is complete

> Notably, 
this 
allows 
using 
Leo 
as 
an 
"IPython 
workbook", where 
you
rapidly 
create 
and 
experiment 
with 
new 
functions, 
deal 
with 
data 
that
is 
stored 
in 
Leo 
nodes 
(both 
for 
input 
and 
output), 
create 
more
functions 
to 
deal 
with 
that 
data, 
etc. 
And 
all 
the 
time, 
all 
the
functions 
and 
data 
are 
persisted 
inside 
Leo 
nodes, 
so 
you 
don't 
need
to 
think 
about 
where 
to 
store 
stuff, 
cluttering 
your 
work 
directories
with 
files, 
etc. 
And 
your 
IPython 
hacks 
will 
no 
longer 
be 
"throwaway"
stuff, 
unless 
you 
really 
want 
it.

Now might be a good time to mention this page on Leo's wiki:
http://leo.zwiki.org/WhatMakesLeoSpecial
After more than 10 years of trying to understand and explain why Leo works,
it dawned on me that Leo's DOM (Document Object Model) is what sets Leo apart.

Clearly, this realization has relevance for Leo as an IPython notebook.
