      Vim, when run in a terminal is designed to work in a very poor
      environment, and there is only one thread of execution. On the other
      hand, the netbeans interface has been designed with a GUI in mind (since
      it was meant to be used by IDEs) and registers a call-back that is used
      to process the received netbeans messages. So, to port the netbeans
      interface to Vim in terminal mode is not simple. One would have probably
      to setup a hook in the main loop (RealWaitForChar() in os_unix.c), that
      is, right in the deep heart of Vim.
      Too bad.
