Sorry, did I miss the part where you weren't saying you're avoiding a 
method or tool simply because you don't like to do something that may 
associate with you with those lowly primitive mouth-breathing yet often 
well-paid click-monkeys and you have an actual valid reason showing that 
the CLI is inherently better to use in all cases?

My statement so far appears to still be valid. No one is arguing 
anything other than the implementation of tools that currently exist, 
and no one has yet to produce a valid argument that wizards, graphical 
configurators, and CLI tools cannot coexist depending on the situation 
at hand.
