No, that functionality isn't really separated out into clean modular
pieces, I'm afraid.  Partly because I was lazy, partly because it
requires run-time analysis of your matplotlibrc settings to detect
your GUI backend /before/ ipython is started up, so we can decide
which threading system to initialize.

So a pure profile-based solution isn't going to be very concise, unfortunately.
