Just to be clear on 

	-	(M,3) Move .py export to nbconvert and remove --script

If I remember correctly, 
This means that will remove script in favor of a more general mechanism that
would allow to trigger any conversion as save time. Like **always** save an static
html, or a static .tex --script is awfully restrictive to only py files.
This mechanism will use nbconvert.

That being said, it is not guaranteed that, on dev --script will not be removed
before adding this new mechanism. 

And also, notebook are importable thanks to an import hook which is somewhere in 
IPython, but nobody test it, and nobody maintains it. 
It is though cleaner than saving the .py file IMHO. Just saying'
