True. But then it would be nice if you could, would'nt it?

Appearance is not everything, or the most important thing, but it is not
entirely irrelevant either.

After all, command line interfaces are in many respects far more
functional than GUI's, the best of which are still quite cumbersome. I
guess if you put functionality right at the top of the list, you wouldnt
use a GUI in the first place.

But I take your point that the deabte is not purely about appearance.
