Glad to hear that, and it's important to note that we view that goal
as something that you should be able to achieve; if something prevents
it in IPython, it's a bug. The Sage command line client is a heavily
customized ipython, but it doesn't fundamentally change the logic of a
REPL, so it should be 100% doable via configuration/extension fixes,
without having to subclass/rewrite any of the main parts of the code.
Keep on pinging us if you find anything that prevents that (and I know
that the docs explaining this could use improvement).
