You're right! However, as Julian pointed out: it is less than fascinating 
to work on a GUI, _especially_ if it is for the masses who tend to 
criticize without contributing*Footnote 1*.

So, unless the people who want a GUI so badly do it themselves, I think 
they will have to hire somebody to do it for them. Remember: since it is 
free, there is customer, and therefore no customer can be lost!

thought it would be such a good idea to _demand_ features. And since it is 
Open Source, the good developers should work for free.
