It should be relatively easy to add ipython support. I have actually
done it already for a "written-from-scratch" qt ui (currently using
QScintilla - I tried using QTextEdit first, but it was way too slow
for output-heavy operations like "find /").

The code has crap left from QTextEdit side, and it could use some
refactoring, but it should be short enough to see how you can add
IPython support to PyQtShell. Notably, it's "special" in that it uses
2 scintilla widgets (one for input, one for output - to make it easier
to enter/edit multiline code).

Get the code by:


(look at / run qtipywidget.py).
