having problems and I can't approve the submission.
It basically showed no highlighting, and weird artifacts for commands
like 'ls' in the output. Laurent, I can send it to you privately if
you want ]

- no highlighting
- strange ESC]0; artifacts for some output.
I also noticed that anything that is printed out goes to the terminal.
Try for example
and you'll see the output paged in the terminal where wxIPython was

regain control of the WX shell at all, no matter what I tried.
So it still seems to have a few rough edges, but I see a lot of
potential here. Thanks!

That's OK, it gives you a self-contained area to work in. It would be
good if you could add a README.txt file that indicates that this is
still *purely experimental* code, so that people aren't misled yet
into thinking that it has the full ipython capabilities. I'm very
happy to have you on board and contributing a real GUI ipython, but we
need to be careful not to confuse users as to the robustness of the
