<shot type="long">
I'd like to use ipy instead of or in addition to the python
interactive console in ArcGIS, has anyone else tried that? Is this
possible or just a pipe dream?
</shot>

I can access at least parts of it in standalone ipy with "gp =
win32com.client.Dispatch("esriGeoprocessing.GpDispatch.1");
gp.AddToolbox("C:/ArcGIS/desktop/ArcGIS/ArcToolbox/Toolboxes/Conversion
Tools.tbx")" but things like tab completion don't work. For instance
"gp.{tab}"  only shows the _*_ objects.

thanks,
