Original Launchpad bug 296114: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/296114
Reported by: fdo.perez (Fernando Perez).
This is a feature request from SageDays11.

when implementing this feature, since the checkpointing needs to be merge-aware.
Ticket no longer valid. This feature has been implemented.
