FWIW, I have no opinion about anything that goes anywhere near POSIX.
POSIX-prescribed stuff is designed for users that are very comfortable
with TFM, so the type of hand-holding that's appropriate for ordinary
users isn't necessary for POSIX users.
In fact, discord between POSIX and GUI tools could even be argued to be
a perverse type of feature, because it gives a clear indicator that
you're moving into geeky territory.
