CASA UI Demo

User Interface:
        Based on Python/Ipython:
                - TAB completion
                - history
                - macros
                - save commands
                - auto parentheses
                
        Based on UIWG requirements:        
        Parameter setting shell (Python):
                inp 'taskname'  #query values
                parameter=value #set values
                                #note globals
                taskname        #execute task

                save and restore of parameters (autosave of last execution)
                basic parameter checking  (types/menus)
        In-line help (tasks/parameters)
                - startup
                - help tasklist
                - help task_name
                - help par.parameter_name (bandname,robust)
