It's not planned to - the AST transformation happens after magic commands
have already been processed, because we need to be able to parse valid
Python code by that point.

The added complexity of special-casing %timeit and trying to work out when
it's complete isn't worth the relatively small benefit. If you want to time
multi-line code, use a cell magic. Or, when stateful transformers land,
mark line continuations with backslashes.
