I'm currently running python on cygwin, but lust for shell features in
IPython. How can one install IPython for Cygwin? I see

but no instructions on how to do that. I also didn't see an ipython
package when running cygwin's setup.exe against


which is usually complete and current. Apologies if this is a FAQ, but
I also don't see either anything relevant @


or any easy way to search this list.
