OK I'll propose a patch.

Probably less disturbing for the users when showing classes or big records
that exceed the window height. Append would show the bottom part while
currently the upper part is shown. It matches also the order of the history
list of expressions. Other than that probably a matter of taste. Linux users
are used to look for recent events at the bottom of logs. Windows users look
at the top of the event logs. 
For cli commands, which will not be included, insert on top is very
unnatural. So I'll probably propose a configurable top/bottom insert.
Something like a 3 state button or combobox. Top insert, no history, bottom
insert. No history state could serve as clear screen.
