[IPython-dev] Starting an IPython cluster from within a Python script

Quick question:

When I try to start an IPython cluster from a python script, for example,
using os.system("ipcluster start -n 6"), the process just seems to hang.  I
think this is because the process is waiting for a return value from the
call to os.system, which never comes.  Starting an ipcluster in another
shell window works fine.  Is there a way (or is it not recommended) to
start ipclusters within a Python script?

Thanks!
