The text mode IDE can display statisics while compiling. Why can't 

There is the compiler unit, which *is* available, and this is the only

officially supported interfaces, but parsing messages is definately not 
an offical interface and recommended against. It is not the first 
time we have this discussion, we discussed possible protocols before.
