While your statement is correct, the context is wrong. 

Fred is able to use commandline tools, but he is either having
problems with his input files or with his calling syntax. 

The real problem is that the error messages are not helpful. And if
the input file is corrupt, the tool is not fault-tolerant enough to
catch the error (or output a helpful message). So if you just take the
commandline tool core and wrap a UI around it, many problems will
still remain.
