Sounds great! Can you show an example for installing a display hook? Is 
it OK to just use print in the hook, or do I have to use IPython's 
output facility?

BTW, the TryNext exception should be available in the IPython.ipapi module.

Another enhancement request: It would be great if the return value of 
the displayhook would be assigned to the _ variable (instead of the 
original object). This way e.g. a curses based browser could be used to 
select an object from a list, pressing a key returns to the IPython 
shell with the picked objects as _.
