[IPython-dev] Public-domain browser terminal interface

The author of GraphTerm has just contacted me to say that he's pulled out
the plain web terminal component - a combination of frontend stuff from
term.js and updated Python code on the backend (so we don't have to handle
more JS than we have to). It's BSD licensed, based on Tornado, uses
websockets and appears to support Python 3, and Dr. Saravanan says he'd be
happy to help us integrate it into IPython.
