I have been playing more with the Qt Frontend that has GUi support.
So far all of the testing I have done recently is with the Qt
eventloop enabled in the kernel.

Good news:

* also all of the matplotlib examples that I have tried are working.
I would say we are over 90% working with mpl examples.
* I have started to try out tvtk/mayavi examples and most of them fail
miserably, either freezing or crashing the kernel entirely.

I think an in between thing to try is trait based apps.  Evan, do you
have some good examples of trait apps we can try in the kernel?  Like
we had to modify matplotlib, I expect we will have to patch traits and
Mayavi as well.  Tomorrow I am going to start shifting gears to
working on the zmq stuff so we can heartbeat the kernel.
