Note: you don't need to create a profile. It's better if you create an
extension (ipy_yt.py or whatever). Profile is just a glorified
extension that can is loaded with ipython -p PROFILE, but that doesn't
seem to be the best approach for your purposes. If you create a normal
extension, you can acquire the functionality while using one of the
"normal" profiles. As I see it, profiles are for stuff that
fundamentally change how ipython works.
