Yes, just use _ip.options

[Q:/ipython]|1> _ip.options.au<TAB>
_ip.options.autocall        _ip.options.autoindent
_ip.options.autoedit_syntax _ip.options.automagic
[Q:/ipython]|1> _ip.options.automagic = 0

You should note that many options only count when starting up IPython,
for example assigning to 'colors' does not automatically change the
color scheme.
