Another thing I'll have to inhibit is some pager stuff.
My understanding is that (X)emacs doesn't like subprocesses which
intercept keyboard interrupts directly.
For instance if I ask for help on 'plot' command in IPython : 'plot?'
and there isn't enough vertical space, I got the message "Press return
to continue or q to quit" and then I'm stuck without being able to do

So the future command line option will have to also inhibit the w32
stuff : 'page_more' in case os.name == "nt" in genutils.py line 1230
