[IPython-dev] ipython-extensions

I have now created "ipython-extensions" branch on bzr, as well as the
cheeseshop package
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi/ipython-extensions/0.1). I think this
will make more sense in the long run than always bundling all the
extensions with ipython core, thus requiring users to check out full
IPython just to play with an extension. Additionally, it will decouple
the maintenance of core ipython and that of ipython extensions.

So far, there is only ipy_gmail.py and ipy_miscapps.py, but moving
forward, it should probably be the place where user-contributed
extensions (especially platform specific ones, or ones with
dependencies to nonstandard libraries, or ones with non-BSD licenses)
are added.

It can be installed by running easy_install ipython-extensions
(provided that you have setuptools).
