%reset was only meant to delete all variables from your namespace, not
to have anything to do with module import/reload.

You may want to look at the autoreload extension:

http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/dev/config/extensions/autoreload.html

and at the dreload() function we also provide:

http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/dev/interactive/reference.html#recursive-reload

Note that neither of these can reload extension modules, as that is a
limitation of Python itself.

Cheers,
