ah, but after this, in interactive mode, when you type sys.argv, it will show
['-c']. Not that i care, it's an ipython feature. I was merely wondering if this
is someting to worry about. In some sense, you're back in the previous ipython 
mode (documented) that when -c is used, the sys.argv is reset after the -c 
command has been executed.
