[IPython-user] pasting code

One feature I've been looking for is a way to copy and paste code from a 
python file and have python ignore the leading spaces. For example, if I 
want to paste a few lines of code from inside of a function to the 
prompt, I get errors because of the indentation. I normally type "if 1:" 
before hand to get around the errors. I didn't a capability like this 
listed in the manual, so consider this a feature request to the developers.
