Releasing ipipe as a separate package would have several advantages:
* I wouldn't be forced to use bzr >;->
* ipipe could have its own set of requirements
* and be released on its own schedule
Being part of the IPython core has its advantages, but as long as ipipes
existence is documented in the core, a standalone should be no problem.

As ipipe is mostly interactive, ther currently are no tests. However
some parts of ipipe could be testet.
