In about 3 weeks (after school finishes), several students and I are 
going to investigate a lot deeper into using the new IPython 
client/kernel machinery to power the sage cell server.  I've been 
thinking about it (and several students are exploring it as well), but 
we haven't made much progress during the end-of-semester business. 
William has also been implementing his code to do remote kernel 
execution via an http channel (if I understand his commits correctly). 
It would be great if we could have a video conference between the three 
projects (IPython, William's Sage Workspace project, and our Sage Cell 
Server) to exchange ideas.  You're much further along than either of us, 
so what I see is (a) we learn from you problems you faced and overcame 
and (b) you learn from us possibly ways the IPython protocol/machinery 
could be made more general to handle our use-cases (like a "custom" 
message type with user-defined arbitrary content).

(ccing William: William, for context, the full message I'm replying to 
is here: http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/ipython-dev/2012-April/009021.html)
