That's right. If you put the following into ~/.ipython/ipy_user.conf

    import ipy_editors

Then it'll use it for the %edit command, and then execute the file
after you've saved it and closed the window.

That sounds like it'll be cool.

You can commit as much as you want into github, and as often as you
want. Things like keybindings are trivial to change too, so commit
when you're ready.
