Hi Jurgis,
I actually started something similar in 2007: http://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/users/santoso/Software.WebLab.html
My biggest hurdle was (as you correctly noticed) the lack of secure sandbox environment for Python. Even though my code would allow you to execute arbitrary Python code over the net, this is not something you want to do in untrusted environment.
I think the Sage project (http://www.sagemath.org/) is doing something quite similar, although in a much more complex way. I'm not familar enough with Sage to comment about its security, but I guess it must be ok since they have online demo.
Hope that helps
