The only thing that I can imagine is that one would allow one recipe
to have the console for as long as it lasts and to postpone output
from all other recipes till it finished. Having finished, the output
from all other recipes that might have completed in the meantime would
be flushed.

The console would be given to the next uncompleted task.

In this way many tasks would be so short as to give up the console
quickly but a long running task would be sure to get the console as
much as it needed it.
