No, actually the point of that tutorial:

was to let you run /without/ having to install.  The ipython startup script is:

/path/to/your/svn/checkout/scripts/ipython


But doing the install is fine; if you don't update SVN all the time,
it's not such a big deal to do

svn update
python setup.py clean
python setup.py install

I just happen to like to run without needing a separate install step,
right off the SVN tree, and that was what the explanation was for
(obviously it wasn't clear enough though).

Best,
