The simplest I can think of doesn't quite work:

planck[~]> python -S `which ipython` -pylab
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/fperez/usr/bin/ipython", line 26, in ?
    import IPython
  File "/home/fperez/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/IPython/__init__.py",
line 60, in ?
  File "/home/fperez/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/IPython/Shell.py",
line 34, in ?
    from IPython.ipmaker import make_IPython
  File "/home/fperez/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/IPython/ipmaker.py",
line 23, in ?
    credits._Printer__data = """
NameError: name 'credits' is not defined

But I just committed r2093 that fixes this.  So if you update SVN, the
above will work just fine:

planck[~]> python -S `which ipython` -pylab
Python 2.4.4c1 (#2, Oct 11 2006, 21:51:02)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
