Ho you saw this :)
It is solved now!
Here is the page for the plugin if anyone has some interest:


There still some problems with path interaction etc... that I try to solve
with editra developer cody precod.
The good point is that he is a macosx dev so he has solved some problem of
my code under macosx!

All is packed in a an egg thanks to the fact that ipython is only pure

I think people have hacked OSX into running under virtualization
environments, but it's not officially supported as best I know.
