BTW, I think we should add back the (ugly, I know) special-case of
honoring -pylab with a single dash.  We've talked about this before,
while it's ugly, this is written in *many* places, including books and
published papers, as the way to start ipython with plotting/numerical
support.  I think it's worth the friendliness to users who arrive via
that path to have that option just work, even if it means an ugly two
lines of code special-casing '-pylab' in sys.argv...
