comment How to clear python console in QGIS?
Don't write to the console when trying to debug. Use QgsMessageLog.logMessage("message", "title") to write to the log window.

comment Error with layer.pendingAllAttributesList
QgsMapLayerRegistry is a singleton (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singleton_pattern) i.e there is only one map layer registry, ever, so you access it though instance(). That has nothing to do with what you are getting out of it as a result. instance() returns the instance of QgsMapLayerRegistry. It's a gross pattern but we are stuck with that for now.

It's worth pursuing, but I don't suspect it's a easy task.
