I tried to use urwid to provide some friendly interface to some of our 
command line tools. It's pretty much effective, but I had difficulties 
redirecting stdout/stdin to one of the widget. In fact I don't know how 
do it properly, so it's currently broken.

Most of ours tools are written so they log and take input from 
stdout/stdin, is there a widget you can use to act as stdin/stdout ? 
Google didn't find any receip for that, it would have been great. If it 
exists, any code sample would be much appreciated.
