[IPython-user] %whos type usage

Internally we have this ability (we use this in pylab mode), but that capability
is not exposed to users.  To really handle this well, we would need to have
an import hook that allowed imported modules to be excluded from %whos.
Then we could provide magics for enabling/disabling this import hook.

We are currently focused on other things, but we would be glad to accept
patches that implement this.
