I guess the reason why it is not really possible (to execute or  loadpy after edit)  is that with the qtconsole
you don't have any reasonable way to be certain of when the edition is done, 
by opposition of the terminal python where the program returns when the edition  is done.

Otherwise, I think the %edit magic for the Qtconsole is here :
L 411 def _edit(self, filename, line=None):

and the core edit magic in smith like 

magic_edit function

you can still try to add a flag and open a PR on github.

have fun.
