OK, great.

For 0.13, we're going to have basic virtualenv support - so if a
virtualenv is active when you start IPython, it will put the
virtualenv library directories on sys.path. But this is deliberately
minimal: if you want to use any more advanced features of virtualenv
(such as ignoring system packages), you will need to install IPython
inside the virtualenv.
