Please update CVS and give things a try.  Magics can now be used in multiline 
statements (with or wihtout leading %, depending on your %automagic settings). 
  Furthermore, magic calls now honor the same variable expansion mechanism 
which aliases and system calls use:

Here's a trivial example:

In [17]: for i in range(3):
    ....:     mkdir $i
    ....:     !touch $i/hello
    ....:     ls -l $i
    ....:
total 0
-rw-r--r--  1 fperez wavelet 0 Apr  6 05:10 hello
total 0
-rw-r--r--  1 fperez wavelet 0 Apr  6 05:10 hello
total 0
-rw-r--r--  1 fperez wavelet 0 Apr  6 05:10 hello


This required changes in a lot of places, so some hard testing would be very 
welcome before putting it into the wild.  Let me know of any problems.

Best,

f
