embedding: how do I redirect print output?

I'm trying to add some scripting capabilities to an application. Since it is 
a GUI application, I need some way to display output from Python. For 3.x, 
where "print" is a function, I'd just exchange this function with one that 
redirects the output to a log window, right.

However, I'm using 2.6 here, where that can't work. So, what I was thinking 
was to redirect "sys.stdout" and "sys.stderr" to a log window and possibly 
replace "sys.stdin" with something that causes meaningful errors if some 
code tries to use it, but that last point is just icing on the cake.

What seems cumbersome is that I'll need to write something that supports the 
file interface using C, which is still a bit awkward. I'm wondering, isn't 
there an easier way to achieve this? How would you do it?

Thank you!
