Hi Thomas,

That's mostly what Spyder 2.2 will offer for qtconsole, with the 
exception of embedded plots, but with a pretty gui to the most important 
options of qtconsole_config.py.

I was thinking that if we could offer other programs the possibility to 
interface with us through dbus, then you could use your editor of choice 
(e.g Emacs, which has built-in dbus support) and our infrastructure for 
evaluation, get help, etc.
