I think there might be a couple different approaches that might be useful
for educational purposes of IPython + matplotlib usage. For instance:

1-) When one downloads a script from the matplotlib gallery via an external
script (name it load_into_ipython or open_with_ipython) the contents of that
gallery script (or any python script) can be executed locally inside an
ipython session.

2-) Matplotlib gallery might turn to an interactive environment where you
can execute the script from right within your browser and change parameters
in the same browser window. As far as I know mpl figures can now be drawn on
html canvas. This might for sure boost the number of matplotlib audience.
