I merged the sconfig branch into ipython1b. The tests aren't run
automatically at the moment, so do:
nosetests -v --with-doctest --doctest-tests IPython.config
to make sure everything is OK.
I wrote a first implementation of round-tripping, so a person can now:
a) Instantiate a new configuration
b) Update the configuration from a file
c) Modify the configuration
d) Dump the configuration back to file
The file writing is done using ConfigObj. The one thing I haven't
tried yet is to write back to the same file I read from (to see
whether comments and structure are preserved).
