Hey Olivier,

1. I'm very close to releasing a new 12.04 AMI with IPython 0.13 on
it. In the mean time you can use the git version of StarCluster which
has support for 0.13 and create a custom SC AMI with latest IPython.

2. It definitely is possible to extend the plugin to do this, however,
this behavior should be off by default and configurable via the
StarCluster config.

3. Yes I'm leaning towards doing this by default given that it ties up
the entire SGE queue anyway.

I'm certainly up for a pull request for 2 and 3 if you have time. I'm
super busy at the moment playing catch up between finishing up next
version, building the 12.04 AMIs, and responding to mailing list but I
will eventually get to this. Feel free to file a bug for this as well...
