[IPython-dev] New IPEP for a multi-directory notebook in IPython

We do need to figure this one out.  There are still some questions to work
out:

What does `foo/bar` resolve to? Is it relative to the initial notebook
server directory, or is it absolute?

We already have redirects
<https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/3058>for notebook name ->
notebook id URLs, perhaps rather than having 'true'
paths in the URLs, we have project-ids, just like we have notebook-ids, and
a redirect handler for loading a project,

i.e:

    /project/path/to/notebook-dir redirects to /project-id/

and /project/path/to/notebook-dir/notebook.ipynb redirects to
/project-id/notebook-id

The reason we have notebook-id URLs is that handling the url rewrites /
redirects on notebook renames might be tricky.  It could be that redirects
are a sensible  compromise.
