[IPython-dev] Matplotlib HTML5 canvas

Ah ok then this is nothing new.  Mplh5canvas has a separate HTTP server that
serves up the HTML5 canvas (and so does iPython -- making the two difficult to
work together).  Was the talk just showing existing mplh5canvas functionality?
Or have they done something new that makes it work better with iPython?

Their implementation works like the GTK/Qt figure with panning/zooming, and
client-server architecture to do that in the browser, unlike iPython which has
static plots (so far...).
