It's just a JS editor, so you'd ordinarily implement your own server
and communication, normally using AJAX requests.

I could have IPython start up a second server on the same machine, and
then open a new tab, pointing it to the second server. This would be
easy to do, security aside, but misses the opportunity to work towards
a more elegant, general solution for all Notebook Panel Apps, which is
what I'm currently calling them.

One important thing to consider early on is how to create a panel app
that can share a kernel with the Notebook. Some apps, like a shell,
would need that.

Cheers

P.S. I drafted an IPEP for this, IPEP 7, updated the wiki and sent a
message on both lists.
