I see! The relevant part is just the very bottom. The following code 
works for me with 0.12:

from IPython.frontend.terminal import ipapp
# use an app to parse the command line, and init config
app = ipapp.TerminalIPythonApp()
# don't draw IPython banner during initialization:
app.display_banner = False
ip = app.shell

if is_wx:
     import wx
     from IPython.lib.inputhook import enable_wx
     wxapp = wx.GetApp()

Though I cannot say why it works :)

Any idea how to make the same thing in 0.10.x after the following line?

ip = IPython.Shell.make_IPython(argv)

many thanks!
