I don't think there's a great way to do it right now, but Fernando is
working on the notion of Cell-level magics, which would make this easy.

The kinda crummy options off the top of my head:

* explicit tic = time.time(); toc=time.time() calls
* dumping the contents in a single function call and timing it
* running a cell, and in the *next* cell, doing `%timeit exec(In[5])` to
run it again with the timer.
