This is a problem but I solve this by running multiple instances of
emacs.  The difficulty arises if you wish to edit the same file in more
than one emacs...  but if you can avoid this, multiple instances work.

Trickier but easy enough via the shell, of course (kill xxx).

Tricky as well unless the task sends its output to a file or even "tee"s
the output so that you can "tail -f" that file.
