Is the ipython_host visible to the gateway directly, or do you really need
two *ssh* hops?

If ipython_host is  directly visible from gateway, then it's pretty easy (I
do this regularly):

[laptop] $> ssh gateway -f -N -L 7000:ipython_host:7000

But if you want to tunnel to a tunnel, then it's a bit more convoluted.  I
just tried this, and it worked for me:

[laptop] $> ssh gateway -f -L 7000: "ssh ipython_host -N -L

Theoretically, you could continue this indefinitely, chaining tunnels by
specifying the command for each tunnel to open the next one.
