Yes and no. The magic commands run in the kernel like any others. The kernel
is currently hardcoded to send back the reference for the Qt console for
%guiref. There is a way for the kernel to send instructions back to the
frontend (e.g. for exiting, or for launching an external text editor), so
it's certainly possible to add an instruction to save html. It's just a bit
more complex than it might seem at a glance, and we'd probably want to think
about how it would fit in with other frontends, like the new HTML notebook.

Logging does of course still work, and you can also extract your history
from the database. But the inline figures can't easily be recreated after
you close the process.
