I use it occasionally, but only when I need to do stuff with complicated logic 
at the command line.  For plain command execution, I stick to tcsh, but I can 
never remember complex looping and conditionals in tcsh, so that's when I 
switch to ipython.

BTW, I assume you mean 'ipython -p pysh' in this, since plain ipython is not 
very well suited to shell use.
