[IPython-dev] API to execute cells of notebook

I have played with the new widgets in the IPython notebook and it's a very
useful tool.  One thing that I would like to do is have the top cell of a
notebook contain widgets that setup global variables, and have the rest of
the cells function as a report based on the global variables.  My idea is
that there would be  a "Run it" button that executes the rest of the cells
in the notebook.

I don't see a way via python to cause the current kernel to execute the
rest of the cells in the notebook.  I could hack something together with
javascript, but that seems problematic and brittle.
