It is useful as well.

The problem is that I will have to prevent the GUI to fire up unless
something really happens.  Imagine how awkward it will be to have that
dead window hanging in there and maybe disappearing (if the program exits
normally) without any interaction actually taking place?
I haven't yet look into that and I believe it will require somewhat more work.

The plan is to get it working on the CLI and later adding it to the GUI mode.
