It is just a silly oversight that `--gui=foo` is not available at the
command-line for the qtconsole.  You can do `%gui wx` at runtime, which has
the exact same effect, until we fix the cl flag.  Can you open an Issue for
that? It should be a tiny fix.

Technically, you can do this at startup by invoking the qtconsole with:

    ipython qtconsole -c "%gui wx"

But I wouldn't actually recommend doing that as anything other than a
temporary workaround.
