Hi Tassilo, i use that:

(defun tv-tail-echo-area-messages ()
    (pop-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Messages*") t)
    (sit-for 10)))

For most evaluation it's enough for a quick look, but if output is too
large, you will have to C-h e as usual.(idem if you want to kill/yank)
You don't need to wait 10s, when you hit key messages buffer go away.
