[IPython-dev] Practices for .10 or .11 profile formats

Ok, great, thanks for the info!

And is the plan to leave the profile API pretty much as-is for
post-0.11 releases?  I understand that the .10 and .11 changes weren't
necessarily expected, but it be good to know if I can plan around the
.11 style syntax as the structure for future releases.

Along those lines, there is one thing I've noticed in the custom
profiles I've built that I'd like to eliminate if possible.  If I
inject startup lines using  c.Global.exec_lines, they seem to
increment the line count.  So I never start out with the line count
actually at 1.  Is there a way to override this behavior, either by
just setting the line count manually,   or a version of exec_lines
that doesn't get stored in the history?
