I'll take this as a wordy "yes, but will take some time".

Please keep in mind, that the good ol' TTY approach with only one single
point of focus is not overall obsolete: When dealing with a single
proof, one normally only focuses on the lines one is writing. So if
there will be a reasonable replacement for the output window (i.e.
immediate display of messages), this is fine. But having to use the
mouse to get the information is not (even a hotkey for "get message
under cursor" probably will be cumbersome).
