In order for your request to make sense Python would have to be
available as a browser programming language. This has been done (by Mark
Hammond as part of the win32all extensions), but for security reasons it
is no longer installed by default, and it's not sufficiently widespread
to make such solutions really worthwhile.
If you are talking about web servers *delivering* such interactive code,
then there is no inherent difference between Python and other web
servers - they just deliver the interactive code to the browser. Bob
Ippolito's MochiKit is quite Pythonic in nature.
