Forgive me if this is a stupid idea,

but if the renderer was a seporite process or even execuable,
would not the "checking for escapekey" thing become obsolete?
blender could then just kill off the process when someone pressed
escape from within blender, and to do the displaying, if the renderer
wrote each pixel as it was rendered to a fifo/file/pipe , then the blender
gui could display as each bit became rendered. It might also mean
that multiple processors could come into play, and mean that blender didn't
go totally un-updated-display during render.

If this is total hogwash, just ignore me. Sorry.
