Can you elaborate on this distinction?
Also, as a pure-python library, I'm also curious how easy it would be to
port parts of yoton to Google App Engine (for instance, to run a kernel
on GAE). You wouldn't have a BSD socket, but you could substitute in a
wrapper around the GAE Channel class, I think (or at least hope).
In order to get IPython messages to go through a GAE instance out to a
web client, it seems that we need to write a zmq<->GAE channel bridge
(similar to the zmq<->websockets bridge in the IPython notebook , IIRC).
