Thanks everyone, I added a note about both methods to vim-ipython's README.

Just to clarify: vim-ipython, as shipped in IPython 0.11 and in
git, can talk to any kernel given the proper connection string,
regardless of how you started the kernel. So the command for
starting a standalone kernel which Min shared for 0.11 works fine
for vim-ipython.

I have not yet made the changes Fernando refers to, which was to
make it so that vim-ipython *started* a new kernel if it could
not find one, or at the user's request, but will do so as soon as
I find the time (perhaps even tonight).
