Well, as I said, there's nothing to be ashamed of on your part, you
did what you had to do to make it work.  The 'right' way to do this
will come when in the refactoring, we isolate ipython instances
correctly so they don't have global side effects all over the place
like they do now.  At that point the hacks you had to resort to, and
which cause massive problems in the test suite, will just become
unnecessary.

So no worries, if anyone's at fault here, it's me for years :)

Cheers,
