It is possible to have several clients connected with a single kernel, but
it's not really designed for the same use case as Pyro.

With Pyro, the server registers specific objects and methods to be exposed
remotely. With a Jupyter kernel, the client sends code to be executed in
the kernel. It's more like having users SSH in to the server to control the
machine; they have full access to run arbitrary code on the server.

Best wishes,
