Have a look at the preceding patches ;-)

I've fixed the line wrapping and window resizing issues first. It was
based on some of your changes but I fixed various things (like having
progressbar chain the WINCH signal handlers instead of hacking around

This doesn't add the interactive logging as I'm still not sure that
makes sense in master. If we do that I want to think more carefully
about the UI to it.

The interactive terminal stuff is also pending as I was pretty horrified
when I realised how you implemented it. What we need to do is issue an
event and have bitbake respond to that event where the event contains a
"command" parameter.

So I'm working through the patches but I think with the changes I just
posted, knotty2 should be ready for wider usage.
