Not sure that is a possibility yet.  For the moment you could try
asynchronous export as a workaround.

That said, I am curious why you are knowingly tying a computationally
intensive (possibly buggy, during development i.e.) process with your
editor.  I have to work on some fairly computationally intensive
analysis with Python.  I always keep them in separate modules and
scripts run from the shell.

Hope this helps,
