For those interested, you will find attached a simple app that
essentially does what Jeff described, albeit entirely on a single
computer. (Thus, if you can run Python on that machine, you can run it
via a web browser without sandboxing).

It requires CherryPy.

Here's what is required:
1. Download and install CherryPy.  http://www.cherrypy.org/
2. Save doctestquiz.py in the tutorial directory that comes with
cherrypy (so you can use the default configuration file).
3. Run doctestquiz
4. Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/index
5. Have fun!
