Open file with %edit from IPython


I've been poking around a bit, but couldn't find anything other than copy/paste (albeit using Control-E-E when from clipboard to ipython) for sharing code between ipython and the VS editor tabs. Am I missing something perhaps? For example, is IPython's %edit feature somehow able to open code inside a Visual Studio editor tab? (It's not working for me, but I'm using python 2.6 and a correspondingly old ipython version too but will look at 2.7 and latest ipython soon - if it's working for anyone that'd be great to know).

If there's currently no specific support for %edit, might it be easiest to invoke devenv.exe with arguments that load a file - something like explorer - or would you recommend I try coding something within the ipython repl script? - any hints/thoughts welcome.
