I am imagining tools that are independent from drscheme for a moment.
Consider sirmail and just imagine for a moment that it was the best
email client ever. What I'd like then is (min) a gui 'thing' that
offers three buttons:

   | drscheme | games | sirmail |

I would personally plug in my scripts for maintaining my accounts,
my stocks, etc.

I do NOT think that this gui tool should support all command-line  
options (commands).
