I believe Ping has also proposed such a display hook. I'm not against
the idea, but I'm also not much in favor -- so I'm kind of +/- 0...
I've always thought that the interpreter mainloop should be rewritten
in Python. That would be another PEP, and this would be a good place
to add a display hook as a feature.
Note that the example curreltly in the PEP has a fatal flaw: it's got
a recursive reference to print. This is one of the things to consider
when proposing such a feature.
Sorry I can't be of more help...
