Python 3: __builtin__ got renamed to builtins (with an s, without the
underscores), and the reload function got moved out of the builtins to the
imp module. For interactive use, you should be able to just do 'from
IPython.lib.deepreload import reload'.

It shouldn't be necessary to combine deepreload and autoreload - with
autoreload 2 on, it should check all imported modules, unless you've
excluded any with %aimport -foo. If it's not doing that, there's presumably
a bug somewhere.
