Maybe, we should add new state for entries, something like "Output generating", by analogy with "Calculating". But I not sure, it maybe gives more cohesion between expressions, results and backends code and it's not good.
  I'm not sure here, neither. This additional status, something like "Rendering" or "Writing output", can be annoying for small outputs since we change the message in the status bar for no real reasons - the part we spend in the rendering is negligible small. For bigger outputs the user will usually want to not to show any output at all. So, we only have problems if the user really asks to show a big output. For these cases let's stay maybe with one singly state "Calculating" for a moment. Let's decide later how to improve here when other bugs are fixed in Cantor.
