Perhaps I could manage by converting the arg string to

"ipython -a -b -- myscript.py -c -d

before processing.

(note the added --)

I'll try to take a look at it.

DPyGetOpt is probable my least favourite corner of ipython (that's an
understatement) so I'm not really too comfortable messing with it.
