You seem to be calling all the right functions. Perhaps it's a matter of
calling out_flush() to get the text onto the screen? That might be needed,
since Vim is waiting for characters and the functions are callbacks, thus we
don't go through the normal loop that updates the screen.

Either by adding it to the default status line, or showing it in another way.
