I'd make everything line-oriented.  Anything from the user up to \n is 
buffered and ignored until the \n arrives.

Once the \n arrives, the command is acted upon atomically, either 
completing fully or launching an async notification.

So the rules are: whenever the monitor is idle, a notification can be 
printed out.

Do not meddle in the internals of kernels, for they are subtle and quick to panic.
