Such a work is starting already.  I suspect for someone who doesn't know the 
ipython codebase it would be quite time-consuming, since the code is very 
badly organized.  But I know my way around that mess, so hopefully it won't be 
too bad.  And precisely what I'm doing is organizing it better for the future. 
  I've only barely started, as firt I need to tie up a few loose ends with 
matplotlib support.  but that is almost finished.

Best,
