Using vim in server mode with ipython

P: n/a

I found this page:

But it does not seem to work for me. I set the editor in ipythonrc to
gvim. Then I followed the instructions, step by step. To needlessly
paraphrase the instructions:

[0. I started gvim with "gvim --servername ipython"]
1. I put the in my $PYTHONPATH
2. I cranked up ipython
3. I imported ipythonhooks and set the hook
[4. I started gvim with "gvim --servername ipython"]
(if not done at step 0)
5. I called %edit from ipython

At which point ipython took me to a new gvi window (and process).

What am I not doing that doesn't seem to be in the instructions?
