Excellent. That would create an excellent platform for simple
experiments, or just when showing something to someone, like to our
bosses, so that he doesn't have to install a thing, especially on
windows. :) Something like sagenb.org, but much faster (=more
responsive) and not requiring a login, all of which should (could) be
possible on the app engine.

Do you have any time estimates when something will be usable? I think
the goal on Sage Days 8 was to have something ready by the same time
next year, right? Unfortunately, I don't have time to help much,
unless it's ready to do the 90% of things that I want, then I could
help with the rest 10%.
