I don't know: how universally used is IPython?  I'm only installing it now on account of the tutorials; otherwise, so far, I've seen no need to and probably wouldn't, but am in the minority?  I honestly don't know (and suspect that no one has the global usage statistics to say for sure).  In other words, are we going to let the "problems" arising in one specialty package govern the behavior for the baseline library?
