You mean like this :

argv = ["-pi1", "${time.sleep(0.2)}PyMAD>>> ",
        "-po", " ",
        "-profile", "pymad"]
ipshell = IPShellEmbed(argv)

It works, but it displays 'None' before PyMAD. It is because time.sleep() 
returns None, I presume. How can I make it return an empty string, 
instead ?
