I just think the stdout and stderr ought to be visible at the same
time. Or perhaps it would suffice to show stderr above stdout, or
automatically switch, or something.

That sounds good to me. And you could head each 'output box' with the
command which produced it. (Though numbering could be useful too.)

I'm considering writing a 'next gen' 9term, if you'll excuse the
expression, and these ideas (a terminal 'canvas', and separated
streams) sound like they would be a very nice fit.
