Definitely. My experiments are on GitHub:
But for now there's just a kernel and a notebook manager, which don't
work together at all.

Thanks, that sounds like a workable approach.
Unfortunately my JS knowledge is insufficient even for following
this advice. It seems to me that a front end JS handler would have
to be part of the JS code that the notebook server hands out to
the browser. Unless there is a mechanism for injecting JS code
from the kernel side. I guess I have some more googling to do...
