Here is a quick note, not much time to look into it in greater detail. 
Here are some test reports for me under Linux (Ubuntu gutsy),

The bad:
   - I cant see what I type.  So the WHITE color isn't working.
   - If I type just '?' on the shell I get the ipython help on the terminal.

The good:
   - !ls is nicely shown in the wxIPython shell
   - Tab complete shows up nicely.
   - something? or something?? works very nicely.

So apart from a few small niggles this does appear to work very nicely.
