Interesting article.  Thanks for sharing it.

My first reaction was to wonder why not simply have a commandline
driving graphical output in another window.  But I see your point about
having a history connecting commands to the output.  I'm just not sure
how often I would actually need that.

Disagree with your assertion that ncurses-based apps are dead or dying.
For example, there are a lot of people using mutt for email and the
non-GUI version of vim for general text editing, and these (and many
other ncurses apps) are actively maintained.
