OK, just wanted to clarify.

Note that as of yesterday, you can load the parallelmagics extension
and simply type

%px %qtconsole

and automatically one Qtconsole will open per engine, pointed to the
engine namespace.  These consoles treat the engine just like a
'regular ipython' (which they are, since we merged Min's massive
mergekernel PR), and you can thus use everything you'd normally do
interactively (including plotting) in any of your engines.

That's another useful arrow to have in your quiver.
