[IPython-User] pylab backend question

For a long time, I've run IPython  on a linux system with matplotlib set to load its Agg backend, which works fine if matplotlibrc  is so modified. This is exactly appropriate in the notebook mode, with external access to the web server.

However, the backend specification in IPython does not support this: is there a reason? Pylab itself can be started with any backend.  So, could 'agg' be added to the list? Of, if DISPLAY is not set, be the result of the 'auto' option?
