I assume that would include things like gists, which seem easier for
relatively small examples? So long as people don't need to go through
setting up a git repository and pushing stuff, using external storage
is fine by me.

>From my perspective, nbviewer is a poor name for this. The focus
should be on the content (scientific Python example code), not the
tools (the notebook). Within that, we can promote the Notebook, but
naming the site after it would be putting the cart before the horse.
