[IPython-user] ip.IP.magic_reset() confirmation

Out of habit from Matlab, I have a function c() declared on IPython
startup that lets me quickly clear the workspace. After importing:
ip = IPython.ipapi.get()
it calls ip.IP.magic_reset(), but that always comes up with the warning
"Once deleted, variables cannot be recovered. Proceed (y/n)?". I'd
previously commented out this code in Magic.py, but I'm wondering if the
nag could be made optional with a confirmation argument, maybe like this:
def magic_reset(self, parameter_s='', confirm=True):
"""Resets the namespace by removing all names defined by the user.
Input/Output history are left around in case you need them."""
ans = raw_input(
"Once deleted, variables cannot be recovered. Proceed (y/n)?")
if not ans.lower() == 'y':
print 'Nothing done.'
user_ns = self.shell.user_ns
for i in self.magic_who_ls():
