Hi Carl,

Thanks for sharing this!  It looks like you've done a great job, and I
hadn't heard of the Kano project before (http://www.kano.me).

Yup, there's obvious similarities (.commands are reminiscent of %magics,
shell/os/python blend, etc). But I'm always happy to see folks exploring
these ideas in different directions, and with the freedom that starting a
new project provides. IPython is by now an old and stodgy project, saddled
with the weight of a large user base. That's on many fronts a great thing,
as it means we've been successful in providing something of value to a lot
of people. But it also means that we're much more constrained in what we
can reasonably do without breaking things for existing users.

Best of luck with the project!
