Awesome.  That is really great to hear.

I've thought a lot about the future of the Sage notebook, and how we 
might transition to a multi-user IPython notebook instead of pushing 
forward with the current Sage notebook design.  I'm excited to hear that 
doing a good multi-user IPython notebook is one of the top priorities.

The thing about the issues is that the discussion isn't threaded.  If it 
was, and if it was easy to easy to quote parts of a post to reply, then 
I think it would do a good job of replacing an email discussion.
