Also fixed an issue that the --existing... message would be inaccurate if the heartbeat port is unspecified.

minrk added some commits Aug 8, 2011
@minrk minrk specify heartbeat port at construction, not in run
when port=0, the heartbeat port would be unknown until the heartbeat
started, making the '--existing…' message inaccurate.
@minrk minrk add 'ipython kernel' entry point
For starting a kernel without a frontend.

Awesome, thanks! Min, before merging, could you update the examples I wrote in examples/lib to remove the hardcoding of the hb port, since you've now fixed that? Then we can merge this and point people who are asking about all this on-list to do a master pull.

Great to have this!
