Okay, the transformer approach worked amazingly well. It's a bit of a hack
the transformer simply adds a ',' to the beginning of lines where I'm
calling commands that need to be 'auto-quoted'.. but certainly speaks well
of the IPython design that my hack worked so quickly. :)

Again I just guessed on using the transformer approach, I might also dive
into doing a custom completer just for fun... so let me know if you
guys/gals have alternative suggestions.

Cheers.. keep up the great work..!
