A couple of suggestions (apologies if they are dumb or already
implemeted :). logstart sticks a logfile in each directory you start
IPython from. I thought it would be cool to have the following
1. Allow the user to have one logfile that always logs stuff into
.ipython/log. Unlike __IP.savehist, this log is always
2. An option to specify the log mode from the command line. Right
now you can say ipython -l, but that by default uses the rotate
mode (which I dislike). I ran into this problem sometime back
but did not get the chance to post about it.
I do know that logstart [log_name [log_mode]] will do the trick but
the problem is that you don't always remember to logstart and
sometimes something goofy happens and your shell bombs.
