We try not to add more configuration unless it looks like there's a
real need to have both options:
- If it's configurable, there's an extra maintenance burden of making
sure each option continues working in different scenarios.
- Most users will never go looking for an obscure config option, so it
doesn't relieve us from the burden of picking out a sensible default.

In this case, I'm leaning towards the view that embedded IPython
*should* inherit the future flags, without any config option. But it
warrants some discussion.
