No, I think that's fine. A good warning in the changelog / next release notes 
should suffice here.  We in fact already do just that when %run is called, so 
scripts under %run behave just like they would at a standalone command line. 
Fixing an

ipython script args

call to do the same is, I think, perfectly consistent.  I'm not sure though if 
the options parsing stuff we use will deal correctly with options meant for 
the script and not for ipython...
