I am not sure I understand your question. All I was talking about was using
IPython sources from github (git://github.com/ipython/ipython.git), particularly
at commit 21940ff96ec60b3a01bd4ee08c97d0b74a95204e. 
%clear is not available in trunk, the file with its implementation lives now in
the IPython/quarantine folder in the source tree. Does it mean there's a problem
with it, or that it's going to be removed? 
I was looking for a way to consolidate some old history to have it available
within ipython, but I guess I'll just rely on my backup of the shadowhist
folders and grep.
The docs (nightly), though, still mention %clear.
