comment live output from subprocess command
This seems to be exactly the same solution as has already been given (more than once). What is this adding?

That sounds like a semantic argument: you can't support x11 because the VT100 in the paleolithic exhibit that it emulates doesn't do that... since it is an emulator - presumably it can do more. Let me rearrange words to make them less offensive to you, is there a reason why an x11-terminal-emulator can't be as good as a 'normal' terminal emulator, full question?

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense. But at the same time, xquartz is just a terminal which also supports x11... so it seems like it would be better to add x11 support to terminal, than to entirely reproduce a (much worse) terminal-emulator with x11

comment Scientific/Exponential notation with sympy in an ipython notebook
Thanks @asmeurer, it would be awesome if those were exposed directly. Since ipynb is largely geared towards presentability, it seems like having something you can set in your ipython profile as a default would be great as well.
