Why would it require a launcher at all if it is cli?

My concern with this whole do a thing, wait for help, do a thing, wait 
for help method is my memory. When I managed to package and submit once 
before I gave up because it took so long that by the time I finished I 
had no idea how I got that far. If I have to send out a bug and wait 
each time the help will probably be meaningless to me by the time it 
arrives. One of the down sides of having to juggle family, work, 
programming etc is that my train of thought is being constantly torn away.
