 from __future__ import division is the first line of my every python  
script so I don't think I will have any problems with it, but I guess it  
can be a problem for other cases that I don't know about.

Anyway, in my opinion, "inheriting" division is logical behavior. It  
actually was especially confusing for me because I have the import future  
statement in my ipython config file so whenever I run ipython, future  
division is automatically imported. So I assumed the embedded ipython  
would be the same.
