[IPython-dev] Displaying custom widgets in iPython notebook

I'm dealing with a bit of an interesting use-case, where non-programmers
are using the iPython notebook to run queries on our production database
and interpreting the results.

In this use case, but also in others, I think it would make sense to create
a method similar to __str__, but returning a widget made of HTML/CSS/JS
meant to be displayed in a browser, not just text-only output.

Does it seems appropriate for Python objects to be able to display
themselves natively in a browser, perhaps self-contained in an iframe?
