Well, if you don't need any of the gui synchronization support, you
don't really need to use any of IPython's special support. You can
and be done with it.
So I don't see what we need to add on our side, all the special modes
that %pylab supports are strictly for cases you don't need (GUI
backends or automatic inlining of figures).
