Tried that already, it doesn't work.
It is only in effect during the execution of startup file, not after.

So if I have init.py:

from __future__ import division
print 3/4

it will print out 0.75, if I do execfile('init.py') or from init
import * or set it to PYTHONSTARTUP, but afterwards it is not in

And I don't see a function interface to turn it on either...
