great snippet, I use ipython for other things (virtually everything actually) so I changed the code to

def load_django_models():
    try:
        from django.db.models.loading import get_models
        for m in get_models():
            ip.ex("from %s import %s" % (m.__module__, m.__name__))
        print 'INFO: Loaded Django models.'
    except ImportError:
        pass

but other than that, terrific

If you're using a virtualenv and ipython is having trouble finding your project settings, I found that adding this to the snippet helped:

os.environ["DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE"] = "settings"
