[BangPypers] using IPython from pdb

Using IPython from pdb, what use is it?
I read Jeff's excellent mail on debugging and tracing and he insisted on
using IPython from pdb. I have used pdb extensively and never used IPython,
(it never caught me, given that odd interface of number[:]) etc.

So, I am really not sure as how using IPython from pdb can help during
debugging? I tried it, I loose all the pdb's capabilities when I enter into
the IPython shell. How do people normally use it?
