[IPython-User] saving qtconsole as html via a command (i.e not right-clicking)

I'm new to iPython so please excuse if these suggestions don't make 

The kernel doesn't know about qtconsole, but don't magic commands? 
If I type %guiref it seems to know. So maybe it could be implemented 
at that level.

Also, you can set up logging, which, combined with replay, could 
have similar results. You could also combine this with a wrapper 
above the iPython level at the OS/window manager level (ex 
AppleScript on OS X) which could automate creating HTML or PDFs from 
iPython session logs.
