[IPython-dev] Guppy (Heapy) for variables in %who?

As you may already know, Heapy provides nice memory statistics of the
object heap. Here are a couple of links discussing it:
* http://guppy-pe.sourceforge.net/#Heapy

IPython already has a magic for printing interactive variables: *who*,
similar to MATLAB's *who*:
http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/who.html except
that the IPython version does not show the size of objects in memory. This
is where Guppy comes into play, since it can provide memory statistics of
the object heap.

I was wondering if there have been any efforts or discussions in
integrating Heapy (or any other memory profiler) into IPython.
