Support IPython when interp is IronPython


currently you can set the interpreter to IronPython and Interactive mode to IPython. However, it doesn't work. The work needs to be done on the IronPython side primarily. I think we should disallow the option until it's implemented otherwise users select it & will be confused when it doesnt work.

Please vote up if you want this feature.

I have investigated this some time ago. ipython embedding is based in ZMQ (c extension). Unfortunately there is no port for IronPython.

It will be a nice feature to enhance the data display feature for ironpython

By "IPython" do you mean remote backends or pylab?
