Hi, 

Great to see that, happy that you were able to bind to IPython frontend.

You might be able to enable scala highlighting in notebook pretty easily
as code mirror support it. 
Ask if you ned help.

As you might know (or not) we will do some changes in the protocol/notebook 
format for next release, you might want to follow that, and give us your input. 

Especially if there are python-ism  that are annoying for you. 
(we'll try to ping you on relevant issues if we think of it.)

Any reason for that ? think your were missing/being annoyed in json ?
Having  notebook as ipynb should allow you to render them 
on nbviewer/using nbconvert. 

We already have kind-of something alike that import .py files tagged with comments 
but without support four 'outputs' block as I think it does not make sense to manually edit 
output. It might be moved into nbconvert at some points.

Thanks,
