Yes, these are good reasons.  Also, with the IPython code base being
refactored so heavily, it gives ipipe a bit more isolation from the
messes we are
making.

Yes, I think we should add a section to the documentation that lists third
party extensions and IPython-using projects.

Yes, ipipe is probably hard to test.

Cheers,
