A quick wished feature, if you agree on its usefulness.

Currently, all error messages are concatenated to the same buffer, execution
after execution, which makes it *difficult to distinguish between the new
errors*, and the ones already seen previously.

Different propositions:

- delete the contents of the buffer before every code execution

- add something visible after every execution, like a separator line or a ^L
  character (new page, than can easily be displayed as a rule)

- always show the last lines in a different color

- in the same spirit, use two alternate colors for the messages (like in some
  HTML tables, for odd/even rows)

- add a timestamp with the date, before every code execution.

This is not exhaustive, just some (funny for some of them) ideas I have in
mind in order to make the messages more visible than they currently are.


Best regards,

Sébastien Vauban
