Having native code automatically means it is restricted to certain  
platforms, therefore I would suggest to not make this part of the  
shell TUI itself, since that would mean it would not work everywhere  
(think embedded platforms here, I agree that the Windows, Mac and  
Unix support covers most desktop platforms).

In my opinion, we should either make it some kind of extension, or  
create a second TUI implementation altogether.
