IPython HTML notebook looks incredible!

I'm thinking of using it for our computational/numerics classes, but can't find an documented way to provide login for multiple users (Only a password protected - even no username). It seems odd to provide only password protected environment. Ideally, i would want multiple usernames (+ password) with unique home directory for each user for storing scripts.

If someone is familiar with IPythone HTML notebook source code: Can that be done in an easy way? Or with couple of day work on IPython source code?

I found useful informations on… Making the notebook server multiuser aware. This is definitely on our radar and we are trying to get this work funded through academic grants. We are at the early stages of the planning of this. I need some kind of hack. Somehow to wrap IPython HTML notebook page into another which requires login? – sivic Oct 17 '12 at 21:20
