[IPython-dev] ijulia?

I keep getting requests for IJulia
(https://github.com/JuliaLang/IJulia.jl) support in SageMathCloud.

However, all my many attempts to get anywhere with IJulia so far have
completely failed, and I have no clue even how to successfully install
it.  I've tried the directions, which all seem to work with no errors.
However, the end result is that things just don't work at all.  In
particular, despite IPython claiming to load with the 'julia' profile,
it's still just plain ipython (in julia ans would be 2 below):

~/salvus/salvus$ ipython console --profile julia
Python 2.7.5 (default, May  5 2014, 17:28:45)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IPython 2.1.0 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
IPython profile: julia
In [1]: 2
Out[1]: 2
In [2]: ans
NameError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)

QUESTION: Does anybody reading this use IJulia?  Is it even supposed
to work with IPython 2.1?
