Yeah, that's because the code uses eval instead of exec. It might make
more sense to use exec.

However, I can't help but think something like this should be done with
the "timeit" module. I don't know if there is a way to force it to use
ipython's namespace instead of the namespace of timeit-module - perhaps
this is something that could be done with a patch to the timeit module.
