=) What use cases does Jupyter_client unlock? Is it about more robust apps in comparison to extensions/ widgets?

It’s less of a feature enhancement to notebooks and more a low-level tool for kernel execution. The jupyter_client library is what most python applications use to communicate between kernels (where your notebook code executes) and applications run. For example papermill ends up using jupyter_client indirectly to facilitate executing notebooks from the command line.
