[IPython-dev] idea "native" ipython notebook

I don't think that a native notebook app should be developed within
ipython itself - we already have way too many things to focus on.
Also, the effort versus reward is pretty low in my opinion.  You are
essentially taking something that already runs on the best cross
platform application (modern web browsers), throwing that out and then
trying to re-invent all of the cross platform stuff - even if you use
Qt, it is a complete pain in the ....  Obviously, we want this to be
possible if other people want to get in this direction though.
