That's a good idea and all, but it's a well known fact that Joe Six Pack is 
the largest body of consumers.  My point behind this is that you should 
have two separate clients.  One GUI download and one CLI download.  Maybe 
the GUI could offer some kind of animated cow screen saver (I know it takes 
away from cycles on a single computer, but if we were able to gain an extra 
thousand clients, would that be a ba thing?)
