Perhaps it would also be possible to have the main command not terminate before the generated log output has completed (like we do with the script runners, where output is not directly from the main command IIRC).
The command keeps running. It is a perl script listening for log messages. Whenever a message is received it pretty-prints it and also converts part of them into txmt links so I can click on the log message and get to the place in code they refer to. Pretty similar to what Xcode build does. No JS, just perl 'print' output.

For some reason though the window does not auto-scroll to the most recent input.
