I thought you guys knew each other. He's the Debian
package maintainer, right Martin?

ASCII mode is useful for low-memory situations. The game
sits in its own console for as long as needed.
Of course the GUI clients are snazier.

Frankly, it distresses me to see all these packages (not
just gnugo) essentially moving away from support for their
text-mode versions. There must be plenty of computers out
there still, and for some time to come, which could use a
very low-footprint GNUnix OS... Not needing to install a GUI
desktop saves a lot of space and memory use/swapping, etc.

And I hope you decide to implement a history function
someday soon.
