One alternative (what I do) is to *not* use `setup.py develop` and instead
just manually symlink the IPython directory somewhere in $PYTHONPATH and
the `ipython` entry point somewhere in $PATH.  Then it's a trivial matter
of aliasing

ipy3 = python3 `which ipython`

and you're off to the races, always running from source.
