In IPython master there is an option to redirect all pager things to output. 
The plan it to make output detachable. 

try --InteractiveShell.display_page=True

see PR 7009.

I would suggest looking at github.com/IPython-contrib for an extension to do that. 
There are some complication to do that though, in particular when "uploading" do you want to upload
to server or kernel ? 

Now that we have content API it should be easier to implement if it is not yet done.
