[IPython-dev] Notebook + WebGL = Molecule Drawer?

Hi guys,

I think that my little demo is more about the potential of webGL + IPython
than about the molecule drawer itself. If a bigger project like XTK can be
ported easily, it could open up a lot of doors for IPython tools.

Anyway, I'll look through the xtk + ipython examples soon and throw this
molecule drawer idea into a new repo. If webgl + ipython picks up, it'll be
around.

Cheers,
Pat
