Hi Brian,

I reviewed the draft.  The following security requirements that you
included are important:

- Map notebook users to shell users
- Run notebook kernels inside a shell user's process

Although live collaboration is fun to have, I want to make sure that
the above security requirements are implemented and tested before live
collaboration, because they is more straightforward from a security
perspective.

I can devote resources to implementing the above two features.

RHH



P.S.

Here is our use case for a large organization:
- A single IPython notebook server
- Multiple users with different access privileges to datasets
