ipython --classic appears to let IPython work properly with Org, but it
does not. There are some nefarious bugs. For example, the second
indented for loop (foo, bar) never runs if the interpreter is "ipython
--classic", but runs properly for "python".

for n in [1,2]:
    print n
    for a in ['a','b']:
        print a

    for f in ['foo','bar']:
        print f

It appears that IPython munges empty lines differently than python. I've
tried the " --no-autoindent" and "--no-pprint" and the blank line still
causes problems. Anyway, I recommend sticking with plain Python which
works in all code I've tried both session and non-session.
