This function (after asking for confirmation) sets an internal flag so that
an embedded IPython will never activate again. This is useful to
permanently disable a shell that is being called inside a loop: once you've
figured out what you needed from it, you may then kill it and the program
will then continue to run without the interactive shell interfering again.

set/get_dummy_mode methods. This allows you to turn off a shell used
for debugging globally.
However, *each* time you call the shell you can override the current
state of dummy_mode with the optional keyword parameter 'dummy'. For
example, if you set dummy mode on with IPShell.set_dummy_mode(1), you
can still have a specific call work by making it as IPShell(dummy=0).
The optional keyword parameter dummy controls whether the call
actually does anything.

IPython-initialized one is updated with __main__.__dict__, so that
program variables become visible but user-specific configuration
remains possible.
- stack_depth: specifies how many levels in the stack to go to
looking for namespaces (when local_ns and global_ns are None). This
allows an intermediate caller to make sure that this function gets
the namespace from the intended level in the stack. By default (0)
it will get its locals and globals from the immediate caller.
Warning: it's possible to use this in a program which is being run by
IPython itself (via %run), but some funny things will happen (a few
globals get overwritten). In the future this will be cleaned up, as
there is no fundamental reason why it can't work perfectly."""
