Hey Ondrej,

So far this is my temporary solution:

from IPython.Shell import IPShellEmbed
ipshell = IPShellEmbed()
a = 5

do a whos in Ipython you will see a listed there. However I couldn't make
--pylab working in that mode.

Also make sure explicitly typing your variables or results in Ipython, for
some reason which I haven't understood nor explained variables might not get
registered into the current visible namespace...
