Great, thanks!

Once it's working, we can implement the %clear magic to return on the
payload a message that says something like 'clear screen' for each
frontend to do the right thing (it's different on a terminal than in
Qt, for example).

No, it's certainly not working right here.  If the terminal is close
to the bottom and my input line is at the bottom of the terminal
itself, I can hardly read anything from the popup, as most of it is
'below the monitor'.

I could show you tomorrow with a teamviewer setup if you want.
