Thanks for this - a really major improvement to something I use all

I think I'm right in saying that us vi illuminati want something like:

$ cat ~/.ipython/profile_default/ipython_config.py
# Configuration file for all things ipython
c = get_config()
c.TerminalInteractiveShell.editing_mode = 'vi'

Esc-Return seems to submit stuff from multi-line editing mode.
