Autoindent, as done by ipython, needs readline which is not available under
emacs. For this to work, it would have to be added on the emacs side of
things (ipython.el). That's a task for an elisp hacker, which I'm not.
With autoindent on, internally it does work:
In : for i in (1,2):
...: print i
In : history
for i in (1,2):
but it's confusing because you don't see those indentations on screen.
Sorry not to have a solution, but if an enterprising elisp coder knows how to
fix this, patches are welcome.
