Custom Home Screen Icons with Pythonista [Link]

Ole Moritz, the developer of Pythonista and Editorial, just posted the craziest thing I've ever seen done on iOS:

The iPhone configuration utility is pretty easy to use, but it obviously requires that you have a Mac or PC at hand. It would be easy to write a web app that allows you to create/download custom configuration profiles2, but I wanted to see if I could do it just using Pythonista, without requiring an internet connection.

He creates a web server on his iOS device with Pythonista that serves up its own configuration profile. Bonkers.
