The main thing preventing me from proposing it for IPython proper is that
it shouldn't depend on the jist gem.
We should just use the GitHub API an oauth, to actually send the notebook
to GitHub from the browser.
But I use jist all the time anyway, so this was the shortest path (it's a
trivial extension) to getting it up and running for personal use.
