I suggest that this question is best posted on the ipython-user list
(subscription required, info here: http://ipython.scipy.org), where I've
forwarded it already.

I say this because I tried and for some reason I can't quite make this work
with plain GNU emacs.  I normally only use XEmacs, so it's quite possible that
my local config has things in it which break GNU emacs, and I'm far from an
*emacs configuration expert.  My efforts so far haven't provided anything,
which is why I suggest you follow up on the list, where users of GNU emacs may
have other suggestions.

I can confirm that a simple

(require 'ipython)

is all I need under XEmacs for this to work as expected, including tab
completions showing up in a normal emacs completions buffer.

I'm sure getting this to work with regular emacs is perfectly possible, it's
just that I can't seem to find the magic incantation for that.
