If you can get those items 'hidden', then I think '%reset -s' (soft reset)
should skip over them. Passing in user_ns might achieve that automatically,
otherwise you'd have to create a shell object and use shell.push({...},

If neither that nor the duster extension Lev mentions (which is new to me)
do what you want, it should be easy to write your own magic to do this:
call self.shell.reset(), then put whatever you want back in shell.user_ns.
You can use '%reset??' to see the implementation of the %reset magic.
