It's probably worth mentioning that we've gone to great lengths to try
to produce in the new console an experience that's as seamless and
fluid as possible to anyone who 'lives in a terminal' (like myself).
We want this to be 'a terminal, but better': multiline editing, inline
graphics, html documentation, popups with call tips, but all the
keyboard friendliness and raw efficiency of a terminal.  Put another
way: this should be 100% usable *without* a mouse, and you should be
more efficient with this in python than with any terminal.  If you're
not, it's a bug :)
