[IPython-dev] Loop over a set of notebook cells?

On a somewhat related note - I'd really like the ability to execute cells
based on the notebook's hierarchical structure, i.e. Heading cells. I've
been looking into extending the Table of Contents plugin to add a "run this
section" option. That way I could have an Initialisation section, and
different sections for different parts of the analysis, and run only the
required bits.

So this is a bit more limited than what it sounds like you're looking for,
since you also want to be able to loop over a set, or to cut and paste.
Still, Headings do (conceptually) give you a "set" of cells and these sets
can be nested. Being able to cut-and-paste all cells in a section might be
a good way to implement what you're aiming at?
