Erik, it's worth mentioning we've been mulling the idea of allowing
profiles to reside in third-party projects.  Something like

iptyhon -p sympy:isympy

would make IPython look for


So that Sympy itself (using sympy just as an example) could ship its
profiles/config files by including a directory named ipython/ in its
own tree, with config/profile directories.

We'd like to get feedback on this idea.  It's not implemented yet,
we've just been thinking about it to minimize the coupling between
project schedules and make it really easy for projects to expose
ipython-based functionality without having to ask their users to copy
profile/config files.
