This looks great.  I haven't had a chance to play with it, but I
definitely am looking forward to a block based IPython.  A few

1) How did you get the GUI talking to an IPython instance?  Did you
use any of the frontend stuff that Gael and Barry have worked on?

2) How do you handle stdout/stderr?

3) Are you still using the line based IPython prefilter, or do you
have an actual block based prefilter now?
