Would it make sense to import pydb.pydb module in pydb_ipy.py, and
inject the ipython version of Pdb class to the pydb module namespace?
That way main() would instantiate the ipython version...

Those functions were introduced long before *arglist syntax (on caller
side)... I'm not sure whether anyone actualle "likes" those functions
anymore. In C they make perfect sense, of course.
