[IPython-dev] ipython notebook

I am currently looking for a notebook interface to the computer algebra 
system fricas (http://fricas.sourceforge.net/).

I was wondering whether it would be easily possible to use the power of 
the notebook that comes with ipython for this purpose.

I expect that the string that is entered into the notebook is sent (as 
is) to a fricas process running in the background. The output (just 
ASCII) could be either displayed directly or one can let fricas output 
tex or mathml and display that.

Is the notebook suited for this purpose or is it too much tied to python?

If the ipython notebook is not suited, I also welcome suggestions for 
other (active) notebook projects. I've looked into SageNotebook and 
Codenode so far.
