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 [1], IIRC).

Thanks,

Jason
