But ipython *does* support pydb.  It now has an (unfortunately
undocumented, I apologize that I didn't catch when that code went in
without documentation) flag '-pydb' that forces ipython to use pydb as
its default debugger if it's available.  If it is not found, ipython
will print an error message.  Does this do what you need, or is it
still not sufficient? Just try

ipython -pydb

and see if you get the functionality required.  Keep us posted.
