enhanced interactive Python shell

IPython can be used as a replacement for the standard Python shell, or it can be used as a complete working environment for scientific computing (like Matlab or Mathematica) when paired with the standard Python scientific and numerical tools. It supports dynamic object introspections, numbered input/output prompts, a macro system, session logging, session restoring, complete system shell access, verbose and colored traceback reports, auto-parentheses, auto-quoting, and is embeddable in other Python programs.

This is a non-official, custom build of IPython 2.x seres with all fresh goodness from the IPython team. It provides IPython2X module thus not conflicting with system-wide installed IPython
