The fix for bug #17213, which I've attached to its bug report,
may be a pre-requisite for output viewing in the GUI.  I do think
that output in the GUI is important, so please let me know how I
can help out with it.  One way to do it that would be really easy
to implement on the output side of things would be to just set up
ASCII output to go to a file; then the GUI could just include a
text-file-viewer window.  That would make output usable, if not
pretty.  (In the long term we'd want something quite different,
and that may require a new output engine.)
RMS on DRM: "This ought to be a crime. And, if we had governments of the
people, by the people, for the people, then the executives of those companies
would be in prison.  But they're not in prison, and the reason is that we have
government of the people, by the sell-outs, for the corporations."
