released: %sql magic for IPython

Inspired and informed by discussions with the IPython developers at PyCon 2013, I've released ipython-sql, a %sql magic for IPython.

With this, I really think the IPython Notebook will become the most amazing database tool ever. In fact, virtually every computing problem will become a lot more workable when manipulated via the IPython Notebook - you can remember, inspect, and annotate all the steps to investigate whatever your issue is. All hail the Notebook! The FSF really chose well in choosing Fernando Perez for their 2012 award.

Great piece of magic:-) FWIW, when I tried it I also had to install psycopg2:

pip install psycopg2
