Yes, that would probably be very easy. But would be hard to have much
integration between the notebooks and the CMS components (imagine panels
like "tag cloud", "trending libraries", "search/example uses", "share",
"co-edit", etc). It would seem that if the CMS were at least written in
Python, that would allow more interesting/useful components and integration.
