I think you'll need to modify in ipython.el somewhere to add the '-p numeric' 
option.  Unfortunately, I don't really know if the right approach is to modify 
the executable string to read directly 'ipython -p numeric', or if one must 
define an argv list of arguments as ['p','numeric'], but with proper Lisp 
syntax.  Since I know zilch about Lisp, I'm afraid I can't quite provide you 
with the proper answer.

But if you're OK with a quick hack, a simple grep -n finds in ipython.el:

  109:  (setq py-python-command "ipython"))

Perhaps you can try modifying this.
