If you're interested in contributing something, see the link below:

OK, the update of setup is not supported, but setup DOES in fact allow fully command line based operation. I know because I moaned about it, collected and tested patches, and even contributed a minor fix to the option parsing.

That's true but I believe the OP was lamenting that there wasn't a version that didn't still have the GUI even when run from the command line. If I'm wrong, then I'm sure you've made the OP's day. :-)
