Note - I suppose Leo can also be extended to integrate well with IPython?

What would really make my day is the ability to do this:

[~]|29> s = "some sring"
[~]|30> %leo s

and then you would have the 's' as node in leo, and editing the string
(or perhaps some other variable type, e.g. pretty printed array) would
update the IPython variable s as well!

Too bad I was unable to install Leo now that I tried - the .exe
installer complained that I did not have python installed (which is of
course untrue, the standard distutils .exe installer worked ok...)
