This fixes issue #3025.


thanks for your contribution, but I'm not sure It's necessary. I propose we continue the discussion on #3025 where I had indicated the way we currently have available for doing this sort of thing.


I am going to close this PR until we have made a decision in the context of #3025 If we go this direction, we can always reopen the PR.

I still need to know the IPython version that is running in specific console.

#3025 is still open. I'll add a comment to revisit this.
