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
options:
 
  1. Allow the user to have one logfile that always logs stuff into
     .ipython/log.  Unlike __IP.savehist, this log is always
     up-to-date.

  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.

cheers,
prabhu
