Nice :-). But actually this is the opposite direction of what I thought
of :).

Rather than having a full fledged plugin system, I'd rather simplify the
code by only offering 2 options: curses and basic text output (which
would probably use python's "logging" system).

Combined with a verbosity level that determines how much we want to print it out.

(if people want the blinkie curses interface, I can live without it)

But that is just my idea, I can live with whatever people and Nicolas
