The patent answer with unicode errors is, don't do that ;-).
The stable IPython neglects unicode on various points, and changing
things will cause other parts to break. If you want to provide a
solution, create a new branch on bzr about it and try to fix it in
Magic.py -> magic_edit. This typically involves encoding/decoding
to/from stdin_encoding (grep iplib.py for that to see how it works).
However, it's not certain such a fix will be merged into trunk, due to
regression risks and the current stability requirements of ipython
