Not yet; I haven't tried upgrading my pydb yet to the cvs version
(because, essentially, it would only be you and me testing it in that
case, plus perhaps a few random people who run both svn ipython and
pydb from cvs). I think you'd better but out a pydb release / release
candidate out first, then we apply the patches to ipython to get more
testing coverage. If you think that the pydb from cvs works ok with
your current version of ipython, that is.

It's just that I'm a bit hesitant to change the ipython svn to depend
on a module that is only available via cvs (as opposed to, say, an
easy_install:able module). Or what do you think?
