Cool. It'd be nice if there was a way to define some of this stuff on a
running instance, instead of you guys having to push each feature by hand,
but I'm just being impatient really. Each new feature will need properly
integrating into IPython anyway.
On keys for the editor feature, users can do `from prompt_toolkit.keys
import Keys`, then use stuff like `Keys.ControlV` easily. The PT API would
make it pretty simple to take a user's Key subclass and set up their
shortcut. I think only do it once per session though, like any event
Best, and thanks again Thomas. You do an awesome job with the Python
