It doesn't seem to be too hard to shoehorn the frontendbase between
the gui and ipython; most of the work is really in implementation of
the actual gui drawing.

Though, at the moment frontendbase can't be directly imported in core
ipython due to twisted dependency. I suppose the only real twisted
dependency in that class could be removed by creating
"result_ready(r)" method and implementing execute_with_callback in
engine that does normal callback instead of returning a deferred...
obviously the engine can use deferred for actual implementation, for
the twisted version.
