Hi Adam,

why not just use a file in the startup directory?

$ echo `ipython locate profile`/startup/
$ cat `ipython locate profile`/startup/README
This is the IPython startup directory

.py and .ipy files in this directory will be run *prior* to any
code or files specified
via the exec_lines or exec_files configurables whenever you load
this profile.

Files will be run in lexicographical order, so you can control
the execution order of files
with a prefix, e.g.::

                  / \
                A*   \^   -
             ,./   _.`\\ / \
            / ,--.S    \/   \
           /  `"~,_     \    \
     __o           ?
   _ \<,_         /:\
--(_)/-(_)----.../ | \
