Hi Johannes,

This is currently not possible. In the future, the collaboration
framework that we are working on may allow this. Currently, you have
to use the built-in Python console. I would love to see that console
support rich interactive functionality like ipython but I am not sure
how to go about implementing that. Any suggestions are welcome.
