Of course, cell magics alleviate this restriction, as we can right now 
do %%r, %%cython, etc., to effectively get different languages in 
different cells.

I don't see why we can't have a %%javascript that then just echoes the 
javascript back to the browser to execute.  What would be cool is for 
the syntax highlighting to also change if the cell detects that it is a 
%%r cell, etc.

Thanks,

Jason
