You might take a look at EPDLab as well.   Thanks to Gael Varoquaux,  
It integrates IPython into an Envisage application and has a crude  
name-space browser

EPDLab is part of the Enthought Tool Suite and is an open-source  
application (BSD-style license).   It's another example (like Mayavi)  
of using the Enthought Tool Suite to build applications.

Don't be confused because the binary distribution called EPD is only  
free for academic use

EPDLab is completely open source.   You can check out the source code  


It requires quite a bit of ETS to run first though.    If you have EPD  
installed, then EPDLab is already available to you.   It's still  
alpha, so I hesitate to advertise it.  But, it's easy to extend as you  
would like so I thought I would chime in on this discussion.

Best regards,
