Do you mean circumvented by the user?  That's definitely an option, but I'd 
like to really fix it in the core.  Especially because they would have to do


so that it all happens before ipython has a chance to mangle the _ variable. 
Plus, it makes testing of real code fragments which rely on _ tricky in 
ipython.  So I think it's worth fixing it for real.
