When using %%cython or %%cython_pyximport from ipython, if the compilation fails you just get this:

CompileError: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

Would be nice to have --verbose option to the magic function which would simply pipe through gcc stdout / stderr, possibly also set distutils log level to DEBUG (distutils.log.set_verbosity(distutils.log.DEBUG)) to give at least a fighting chance to debug the errors.
