I have never used this module, but judging by a quick glance of the
source to "warnings.py", it appears that warning filters are added to a
list called "warnings.filters". They are added to the beginning of the
list unless you pass a true value for the "append" parameter of
"filterwarnings", in which case they are added to the end. The usual way
to remove items from a list apply, ie.:
del warnings.filters # if append was false
del warnings.filters[-1] # if append was true
Note that all of these operations modify module data, which could have
implications in multithreaded programs. If your program is
multithreaded, you may want to consider using locks.
Hope this helps,
