Well, okay, but this is a more generic question that seems to face a lot 
of SciPy users: "I want to layer some stuff on top of a binary install 
of the scipy stuff, without poluting that base layer", that base layer 
being EPD, OS-installed packages, etc...

Okay, but how do I do that without having to build the whole of ipython 
myself? How do I say "just let me run ipython (or any of the other 
binary tools that are in scipy) with a virtual env wrapped over it?
