Yes, I think so. The idea is that you can pre-fill the namespace with a lot
of things automatically (as e.g. pylab mode does), and it will only show
you things that you have actually defined yourself in the shell. There are
also some IPython features exposed in the namespace (like Out) which are
hidden from %who.
