[IPython-dev] CoffeeScript Support

I was playing with a magic last night that takes a line or cell of
CoffeeScript and compiles it to a JavaScript function. It then prints
the JavaScript as the output and also calls display(Javascript()) to
load it into the page.


If I do...

%coffee alert 'hello world'

then it prints...

(function() {

  alert('hello world');

}).call(this);

and an alert pops up saying hello world.

Has anyone else looked into doing anything with CoffeeScript? It seems
like it'd be handy in the Notebook.
