Thanks for looking into it...
I'm a bit out of my depth with this stuff - from Googling the __main__
module in Ipython is actually a FakeModule - whether or not this is
designed to contain interactively designed stuff I'm not sure.
In : __main__?
Base Class: <class 'IPython.FakeModule.FakeModule'>
String Form: <module '__main__' from
Simple class with attribute access to fake a module.
This is not meant to replace a module, but to allow inserting a fake
module in sys.modules so that systems which rely on run-time module
importing (like shelve and pickle) work correctly in interactive IPython
Do NOT use this code for anything other than this IPython private hack.
