I admit to not have worked on this feature (it's on fernando's turf)
but it seems so complicated that I'm starting to think we should add a
magic %paste that would read a bunch of text and just terminate on
some special sentinel, e.g. "-- "

Here's a hypothetical example:

ipython> %paste
Ready to paste code! Terminate the section with "--"
if 1:
  print "hello world"


 print "blah"

--
.. Ready, evaluating:
hello world
blah
