   That's very ugly from the UI point of view, it's not better than doing
   the same thing from the command line directly.

I disagree on the aesthetics.  Straightforward editable text is what
Emacs is good for.  Such an interface invites user-defined UI.  For
example, keyboard macros are compatible with it, as are dedicated
commands (what you seem to be pushing), as are advised functions, etc.
It is also extensible in the other direction (for people who have
extended, or ~/bin-wrapped programs).

Perlis sez: It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data
structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.
