I think uninstalling would be wiser as the 'egg' for python 3 is difficult.

qtconsole / notebook yes.

Tornado is a separate package that will not be clone and might have to be install separately.

Some dependencies for qtconsole/notebook can't be pip'ed or easy_installed (qt/zmq) so you'll have to install them first. 
But if 0.13' work, we don't have more dependencies, so you should be set.

> And, are there any special switches to make sure I'm getting __ipython for python3x__  NOT version of ipython for python 2.x?

The 'egg' does not work for python 3.x so (I think) you will have to `setup.py install` for each change you make to the source code.
I'm not aware of any already existing tool to do that even if they should exist for sure.

ipython for python 3 is usually installed as ipython3 IIRC so it's should be a good sign of wether it is well installed.

> It is also possible to install the development version of IPython from our Git source code repository. To do this you will need to have Git installed on your system. Then just do:
> $ git clone https://github.com/ipython/ipython.git
> $ cd ipython
> $ python setup.py install
> Some users want to be able to follow the development branch as it changes. If you have distribute installed, this is easy. Simply replace the last step by:
