[IPython-dev] remove --script?

Here is another vote along the same lines, I also use --script that way.

Having said that, it would be even nicer if %run would work with .ipynb
files, that way I wouldn't need the duplicate .py files generated by
--script and could still have one notebook depend on another.

Hi folks,

I was just browsing through the IPython roadmap and spotted this:
• (M,3) Move .py export to nbconvert and remove --script
I guess this is a while off, but could I make a vote for *not* removing
--script? Currently I use this feature to make it easy to import functions
between notebooks. I.e., Currently I can have two notebooks on the go, one
effectively importing from the other, because each time they are saved the
.py is also automatically saved, which is very convenient. If I had to
manually export a .py via nbconvert each time that would be a pain, and
would mean the .ipynb and corresponding .py would easily get out of sync.

Btw very much looking forward to 2.0.
