Yeah, but perhaps it didn't look for it in the right place? It
certainly is in the IPython user namespace. However, it's not in
__builtin__ namespace anymore (it caused various problems when used
from there, can't remember the exact bugs that were fixed by that).
You need to acquire the _ip object by using IPython.ipapi.get() if you
are not operating within ipython user namespace.
