[IPython-dev] Frozen IPython

Hi Almar,

I know Pyzo includes a frozen IPython executable. IPython has some
particular behaviour when frozen, left over from IpyKit, a project from
several years ago. Specifically, it uses a configuration directory next to
the package, rather than under the user's home directory.

This is now causing problems, and we're considering dropping the special
case for running frozen:
https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/2702

Do you rely on that behaviour for Pyzo? I expect we could find a way to
preserve it, but there's no point spending time on it if no-one needs it.

Thanks,
Thomas
