This is a good idea.  Alternately, you could create a Tkinter output class
that would open a window with a text edit field.  Probably shouldn't be
that hard to do, and would end up looking nicer in the Windows environment
-- plus you could use it on Linux as well (specify a command-line argument

Can you do "os.system('notepad.exe')" on Legacy Windows platforms?  That
might be an alternative as well.

 I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas.  I'm frightened
 of the old ones.  -- John Cage
