if this software produces graphs or other images, you can display
them in an emacs buffer.  that is all the UI you will need to
trick students into enjoying the fast edit cycle.  lure them w/
(simulated ;-) interactivity.  if you drop the request for a
separate program for UI, perhaps emacs lisp programmers would be
more inclined to contribute to the project (hint hint).

the idea is to live in emacs when possible (i.e., all the time).
