Thank you. I will look into this possibility.
Right now I am implementing a skeleton for what suggested Thomas to see how
it could work.

About that I have 2 more questions :

1- Is there a module in InteractiveShell to do automatic () match, i.e.,
give me the '(' corresponding to a just typed in ')' ? 
2- Is there a way to get interactive help while typing in the shell (à la
Spyder if you are used to it) ?

Thank you
