[IPython-User] formatting console terminal prompt?

The prompt templates use Python's string Formatter template stuff.

As seen here<https://github.com/ipython/ipython/blob/master/IPython/core/prompts.py#L145>,
is shorthand for:

    '{color.number}' '{count}' '{color.prompt}'

If you want to change the formatting for the number, that's 'count'.  So I
think what you want is:

    c.PromptManager.in_template = 'In [{color.number}' '{count:03d}'
'{color.prompt}]: '

This seems to have the desired effect in my terminal.
