I use it occasionally, but only when I need to do stuff with complicated logic
at the command line. For plain command execution, I stick to tcsh, but I can
never remember complex looping and conditionals in tcsh, so that's when I
switch to ipython.
BTW, I assume you mean 'ipython -p pysh' in this, since plain ipython is not
very well suited to shell use.
