Benjamin thank you very much for yours answer! I'm very happy that all the
things are implemented - I'm starting to test these things out :)

If I could I owuld ask you additional 2, a little more precious questions:
1) Lets concider we have kernel K and clients A and B. If client A executes
something on K, I would like K to send notification about it to B
(broadcast to clients) - I think youre talking about something like that
(or am I wrong?).
2) Additional when A or B executes a command on K it will run some
functions from my batch python module. Is it possible that these functions
will broadcast some customized messages to client with the functionality
provided by Kernel?
So basically is it possible to send to Kernel and from Kernel to clients
customized messages with custom fields etc (extend the handling mechanizm)
or should I implement this next to the IPython communication mechanism (I
do not want to implement that next to it, because that is a little bit ugly
;) )

Thank you once again!
