Hi Sean,

Thank you for your efforts. I agree this is a pain point. I see that you have modified the implementation of string writer to implement you solution, that allows all normal functionality to function. So this is good.

To make it more in the style of Magritte, as I understand it,
        > display uses a local variable instead of using a property. Accessing this property should return a default value that can be class dependent. This also makes the initialization code redundant.
        > display now only takes a block, it would be nicer if it also would allow for symbols (as a simple accessor).

If you want me to try and make these improvements, I probably have time for this on Friday.
