class myOutForWxText:
    def __init__(self,aWxTextCtrl):

    def write(self,string):

import sys

Then, when you want to recover the real stdout

Beware: since the sys module is imported once, all the print statemens will commit to this 'myout' things.

The point is to create an object which has a write method, and assign sys.stdout to it.
