We don't have #1, though it used to exist in Midas by pressing the
Escape key during script execution. I will open a feature request in
our Trac database to get this capability back. It will probably take
a couple of months for me to get to it. You'll get automated mail
from Trac when the implementation happens.
I went ahead and implemented #2 since I thought it would be trivial.
It turned out to be a little less trivial than I had thought, but not
too bad. It will be available as the "pause" command starting with
tonight's daily builds.
