I should note that the QtConsole (and any derivative of of ShellApp) has a
kernel_manager_class, and subclasses can simply change this value to use
different KernelManagers. So as it stands currently, you should be able to
# do whatever special things you need to do
kernel_manager_class = MyKernelManager
And you should be done.
Unfortunately, code used to launch tabs other than the first was *not*
updated to use this, and has QtKernelManager hardcoded instead of using the
attribute. I've opened the trivial
PR<https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/1257>required to fix this.
