I agree. Raw output is displayed in fixed-width font almost by convention.

Probably relevant: I'm working on a Compiler Errors window (screenshot
[1]) which displays errors and other messages in a more organized
fashion. It's similar to the Errors List window in Visual Studio or
Problems view in Eclipse. It allows the user to filter, sort and keep
track of compilation issues. I can give more details if there's interest
in this.
