import envpersist in ipy_user_conf.py and %env?   =>

    Store environment variables persistently

    IPython remembers the values across sessions, which is handy to avoid
    editing startup files.

    %env - Show all environment variables
    %env VISUAL=jed  - set VISUAL to jed
    %env PATH+=;/foo - append ;foo to PATH
    %env PATH+=;/foo - also append ;bar to PATH
    %env VISUAL=del  - forget VISUAL persistent val
