I could do that, but it seems a bit out of place in the IPython widget

Imagine if cells had a hidden attribute that could be set in python.  Then
you could use the widget framework to implement a slideshow, or select
which type of report to show.  Being able to only access those apis through
javascript raises the bar for use.
