I would like to have a terminal widget accessible all the time for the
gtk frontend. E.g. a gtk notebook with three entries: the main dialog
window, a shell and the error output.

If I have a terminal widget I can display anything I want inside. But
for the future I would like to enhance the gtk frontend to provide
some mechanism for specialized operations. This will be a togh task
and there will be a lot of thinking, because you are right: debconf as
is, is too weak for some tasks.
