Return/display an object that a repr text, html and JavaScript.

Text in console can be copy pasted, html in qtconsole will be clickable. Js in notebook will open a new tab (or a new window) depending on user preferences.

I find irritating that libs open a tab for me, wether I am in console or browser already. I would'nt implement the js part if it was me.
