Get real...    I use what's there, including the CLI.   And there is quite a 
difference between a fully capable email client and a gui frontend for the DF 

I'm not blaming him for anything, just stating the fact that it would be a lot 
of work to write a front end to almost any command in the light of his 
requirements, and once he has done it...  he probably wouldn't need it.

But if he has a LOT of time on his hands.....    go for it.
