Exactly! Here I think the Unix philosophy applies
100%. For complicated and insanely big (and
super-interactive) software like text editors, e-mail
clients, shells, and so on, it is OK to have Emacs,
vim, Gnus, Rmail, bash, zsh and what have you but for a
small piece of software that does a limited range of
things - it shouldn't be encouraged, put it that way.
