Well, I have reverted to my evil ways of using a shell for Python
stuff.  Old habits die hard.  Your suggestion sounds good.

However, you might have a problem when you want to run large regions.
Perhaps one could count the number of lines in that case and print the
first two followed by ... and then the last two.  

Also, you should really send this suggestion to the python-mode folks.
IPython no longer ships with python-mode.el.
