Question: Buffered Output in Worksheet Mode

I'm writing an algorithm that takes a while and I'd like to print status messages periodically. I typically use the command line interface, and this is no problem. I just do a printf whenever I need.

However, some people who will use this code prefer to use the GUI, and I've found that the GUI tends to buffer the output from printf, printing 20-30 printf statements in clumps instead of as they're called. Is there any remedy for this?
