But, if both the debugger and a GUI event loop are running in the
IPython process, this would be possible.  The only thing that this
process wouldn't handle is input and text output?

But, yes, interactive viz in a debugger makes lots of sense.

Yep, we might need this.  I think coming up with a good paradigm will
really help us.
