That sounds great. What I would find even better is if this was a
setting (if that is something that exists), or maybe there could be a magic
switches this on for the current notebook, or something like that?

Ha, this is EXACTLY what I need, thanks for pointing me there! For others
that might be interested, this is in 
examples/notebooks/Importing Notebooks.ipynb in the ipython repo.

Is this something that might move from an example to ipython proper
at some point? I believe this could be incredibly useful for many people.
Switching it on by default might be a bit intrusive, but maybe there
could be a magic that enables this?
