It might be nice if message streams could be redirected to a file, while render
progress was given in a curses environment with options for quit and pause.

file redirect of messages could be optional, naturally, with default being no
redirect.  The only problem I see is that warnings are printed serially, a
better option might be to keep a count of identical warnings and log where they
happened with a note of how many times the warning occurred.

alternatively, one could maintain the message stream in a separate frame from
the render progress, so that it doesn't clutter the display, and have an option
to save statistics/messages when the render is complete.
