This documentation is for a development version of IPython. There may be significant differences from the latest stable release (1.1.0).
A tornado based IPython notebook server.

The kernels will shutdown themselves when this process no longer exists, but explicit shutdown allows the KernelManagers to cleanup the connection files.
Check the components submodule, and warn if it’s unclean
construct the kernel arguments
initialize tornado webapp and httpserver
Return the current working directory and the server url information
Start the IPython Notebook server app, after initialization

The first 5 ports will be sequential, and the remaining n-5 will be randomly selected in the range [port-2*n, port+2*n].
Load the (URL pattern, handler) tuples for each component.
