[IPython-dev] Curly braces stripped from magic input

Hi all,

Software Carpentry is working on a magic for the Notebook for learning
regex. It'll take a pattern and some strings and highlight matches. We've
run into a problem because curly braces seem to be stripped from magic
input before it gets to the function. See an example at

It looks like the input is being sent through .format or some Jinja
formatting because sending in {{ }} results in { }.

Advice appreciated.
