Great reference for my question; acknowledged as not possible at the moment
I like ellisonbg's reply, as that's where I also expect Notebook to go
- resizable, dragable, arrangeable, ..., cells and yet I expect more
surprises as I get with every new major release ;)

OK, thanks, I wanted to hear what you think
It's interesting idea, although I haven't used markdown cells very
much despite it's usefulness

About PR it's very long shot for. I tried couple of times to
understand IPython flow, even used Understand to visualize it :) but
it's too complex for me and it's changing too fast, so although I like
to contribute it's just a wish unfortunately
