If you want to base your code on ipython1 check ipython1-cocoa branch from
barry wark.

bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ipython/ipython/ipython1-cocoa

If you want to base your code on ipython0 check stable bzr branch /gui/wx
that is an updated wx version based on the gtk example of

bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ipython/ipython/stable-dev

Based on which branch you'll choose to work on I think one of us will be
willing to help you ;)
