I've never tried.  Seeing how ipython is pure python code (no C extensions in 
there), I honestly don't know why it wouldn't work 'out of the box'.  Psyco is 
dark, black magic, so I suggest you take the issue up with the psyco wizards. 
    If any of the failures is due to an ipython bug, I'll gladly fix it, of 
course.

Best,
