Yes, we need to think about the best way to size the output cells and
have them scroll.  Could you open a ticket for that?

If the output is bigger than the size specified, using the scroll bar so a user can see the full results using finite space of the screen real estate.  This will make navigation of the code easier if the output is long.  Any thought about this?
