I'm not sure what the question is here, but at SciPy this year,
John Kitchin from CMU gave a talk in the Reproducible Research
track you might be interested in that was titled "Emacs +
org-mode + python in reproducible research". John does not use
IPython notebook, however, this is just Emacs and plain old
Python. You can find the talk abstract, a link to the youtube
video and other resources here:


Perhaps there's a way of integrating EIN - Emacs IPython Notebook
client (https://github.com/tkf/emacs-ipython-notebook) with
orgmode, so maybe that's what you're looking for? I do not use
Emacs, so I don't know what that would entail, or if that even
makes sense, but it seems relevant to mention on this list given
the content of your email.
