[IPython-user] IPython1 and TaskClient: a helper for task farming

Hi Brian,

For a while I've been using the attached file to do task farming in
IPython1. It provides a simple decorator to help turn a function into
a Task and submit it via TaskClient and return a Deferred as the
result. The user should attach new callbacks to get results. The
submission of Tasks and getting back task ids is synchronously done

It enables usage like:

# commenting the decorator gives a local running function.
# with the decorator the function is to be submitted as a Task.
@parallelized(rc, tc):
def a_local_function(a,b,c):
    return a+b+c

result = a_local_function(1,2,3)

Currently this doesn't make use of the task dependency IPython1
provides, and doesn't set and use the properties of engines properly.
I see these as possibly improvements.
