Thanks for the link.

I suppose each of theses features should be discussed independently. Most should Imho be directly implemented by library,
like cyrile rossant HandsonTable for panda dataframe.

Some other like Traceback could definitively be integrate din the core, have already been discussed, but 
pushed to a later point by lack of manpower.

The response will depend on the exact feature, but instead of targeting a 
specific frontend I would suggest to think on how to get this into the object _repr_*_ or 
in the message spec if it is really impossible to do otherwise.
