[IPython-dev] Thoughts re Leo and Ipython notebooks.

I've just posted some thoughts re Leo as a compound document:
http://groups.google.com/group/leo-editor/browse_thread/thread/759d20f81119e5ca

Among other things, the post discusses adding spreadsheet-like features to
Leo in a fairly easy way.  These are just ideas, intended to encourage
further invention.

My intuition tells me that IPython folk might find these ideas useful or
provocative:

- Leo could be considered an IPython notebook.

- Generalized spreadsheets might be useful in recording scientific
experiments.

- Scientific experiments might want to generate notebook/spreadsheet entries
using scripts.

- The post shows how to declare the "type" of scripts/nodes and show how to
embed scripts of arbitrary types into notebook entries.

Imo, we have only just scratched the surface of what can be done with
scripts and notebooks.
