[IPython-dev] Where do we put IPEP discussions...

Interesting thought.  My initial reaction is that I want to keep our
development workflow separate from the actual code.  I like how the
wiki has a very public record of all our IPEPs, that is organized and
linked like a regular web page.  I don't think that stuff belongs in
the code itself.  Also, the wiki gives us the best of both worlds - it
is an actual repo and people can interactive with it in that manner if
they want.
