Hi Brian,

I reviewed the current draft.  The following security requirements that you 
included are important:

- Map notebook users to shell users
- Run notebook kernels inside a shell user's process

Although live collaboration is fun to have, I want to make sure that the above 
security requirements are implemented and tested before live collaboration, 
because it is more straightforward from a security perspective.

I can devote resources to implementing the above two features.



Here is our use case for a large organization:
- A single IPython notebook server
- Multiple users with different access privileges to datasets
