you mean like downloading it directly into my brain?? cool!  ;o)

No, seriously, every program or library should have some way to script it and glue it together with some sort of automation, a command-line interface being one of the most common ways to do that... and sword has it, thanks guys!!!  That does not mean GUIs are useless however, because **if** they're well designed they're nicer to use when you _want_ a warm body to do it anyway....
