Just make available (somewhere on pythonpath) a file named
ipy_profile_PROFILENAME.py, and have it do the configuration. You can
take ipy_profile_sh.py as the starting point.

Note that there is nothing too "special" about profiles. You can just
add your config to ipy_user_conf.py that every user puts in their
~/.ipython, and just provide -pylab at the command line.
