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

Hm, the xtk-basic-example suffers from the same issue I'm having - if you
run the same sample code in two different cells, it doesn't know what to
do. The easy solution is to carve out a div independent of the notebook
flow and use that to display all js stuff. I'll just do that.
