Yeah I listened to the recent podcast talk python I believe and the creators of ipython & notebooks were on there and they were putting further improvements into it as they are using it in education for python and wanted to address some of the pain points so that it would be an improved environment for python.

It will probably be that the learning environment for python but just not by default.
