The approach I suggested depends only on one IPython feature: per-cell
meta-data.  I don't think that will go away any time soon.  The
solution is bolted on top, so it does not rely on any support inside
of IPython.  Also, you can then choose which configurations to run and
generate your output.  In the end, you'll still have to compare the
output somewhat manually (even though we can potentially track the
outputs via version control too, making things easier).
