So, if you run something like the following through manhole:

def spam(n=300):
    for i in xrange(n):
        print "iiIiiIiI", i


the whole mess comes back when the command has finished completion, and
receiving that much data seems to take the protocol-decoder a while to
decode.  Long enough that it can cause a hiccup, or outright stall, in
the GUI.  So it might be nice to do that processing in incremental bit
so it shares time better.  In twisted.python terms, it'd be in a Looping
construct, or in GTK terms, you'd add it on an idle handler.

Gurgf.  My brain, it is not doing the thinking at this time, so this
post just is to say "don't forget about this; put it on the TODO list or
