I don't see a way to call IPython.ipapi.launch_new_instance and specify
that argv argument.
def launch_new_instance(user_ns = None,shellclass = None):
""" Make and start a new ipython instance.
This can be called even without having an already initialized
ipython session running.
This is also used as the egg entry point for the 'ipython' script.
ses = make_session(user_ns,shellclass)
What's another way to start ipython and have it ignore the contents of sys.argv?
