[IPython-User] Getting deepreload to work by default

The API currently describes the use of deepreload as follows:

> import __builtin__, deepreload
> __builtin__.reload = deepreload.reload
> (

However, I get an error on the first line:

> ImportError                               Traceback (most recent call last)
> <ipython-input-5-8cdf8b90bab6> in <module>()
> ----> 1 import __builtin__, deepreload
> ImportError: No module named '__builtin__'

and __builtin__ itself (which loads automatically when Ipython is started)
is said to have no attribute 'reload'. Similarly, trying to import
deepreload alone raises an ImportError.

I can, I think, get the module to load using

> IPython
> __builtin__.reload = IPython.lib.deepreload.reload

instead. But I don't find that deep reloading is in fact taking place
automatically, even though

%load_ext autoreload
%autoreload 2

is in my ~/.ipythonrc/profile_default/startup/ipython3_startup.ipy. Small
changes to a class are still not showing up unless I manually run

(IPython 1.0.0, Python 3.3.1)
