It's limited. I was hoping for the enhanced python shell mode from
Emacs, which ipython provides. I thought that ipython.el provides an
Emacs interface to ipython.

It doesn't work with emacs22 without the python-mode package. This is
what happens when you attempt to execute (require 'ipython) from the
Emacs 22 lisp interpreter:

    Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file"
      "python-mode") require(python-mode)

and a snipped out Lisp backtrace.

I can't reproduce it. Installing python-mode (and the unnecessary
dependencies it pulled in, emacs21 and friends) made ipython.el work
and now I have a pretty ipython shell in Emacs22. stew seems to sugges
that I should expect other things to work, although I haven't actually
played at all with this in order to confirm that.
