[IPython-dev] Shutdown InProcessKernel?

Say I start the vanilla python REPL, and type:

>>> x=5
>>> from IPython.kernel.inprocess.ipkernel import InProcessKernel
>>> x = InProcessKernel()
In : x  # NameError: name 'x' is not defined

instantiating a kernel takes over the REPL, gives a new prompt, and defines
a new namespace (where neither x nor k are defined)

At this point is there any way to shutdown the kernel, to get back to the
old prompt and namespace?
