Hi !

It look really great : 

A few comment : 

Obstacle 1
def x():
	from IPython.core.display import Javascript

you probably want to `return Javascript('alert("a")')` 
Am I wrong ? 

Obstacle 2:
 same : `return HTML()` I guess...

Please, please, please don't inline script.
We will in anyway prevent script in output so this will become useless anyway. 
Which will deprecate _js_repr_ (at least make it useless) but Brian Json-handler branch 
ill work much better to do what you want. 

Obstacle 3/Obstacle 4
Will be solve with brian Json Handler branch. 

You probably want to inject your own library in the notebook, 
which can be done via custom.js

draft doc : http://elacave.lmdb.eu/~carreau/yui/classes/IPython.customjs.html
use $.getScript(url)
for example :
$.getScript('d3.min.js') in you have d3.min.js in .ipython/profile_xxx/static/js/d3.min.js

You might be interesting in 

To join effort.
