[IPython-User] raw_input replacement in ipython Notebook

I think we could use the Javascript display object to do a simple
dialog that allows a user to enter text that is sent to the kernel.
Shoudn't be too difficult.  Wouldn't be a full raw_input replacement,
but we be a start.

However, is there any easy way to have a pop-up text box, which returns its value to the ipython notebook?  I use this sort of thing from time to time to vary the input to something, without having to modify the code each time.
