Output prompts now (rev 1366) work through generate_output_prompt
hook, an example:

[~/ipython]|1> pycat myp
myprompt.py   myprompt.pyc  myprompt.py~
[~/ipython]|1> pycat myprompt.py
import os
from IPython import ipapi
def prompt_hook(self, cont):
    print "calculating prompt",cont
    if cont: return 'cont..'
    return os.getcwd() + " >"

import time
def output_prompt_hook(self):
    print "calc output prompt"
    return "%d ->" % time.time()


[~/ipython]|2> import myprompt
calculating prompt False
/home/ville/ipython >1+2
calc output prompt
1150375369 ->3
calculating prompt False
/home/ville/ipython >1+2
calc output prompt
1150375374 ->3
calculating prompt False
