While I agree in general, the GUI-frontend-to-a-command-line-engine design is backwards and horrid. The communication is nearly always in one direction with no clear way to communicate failures or unforseen events to the user. In fact most of the time the app can't even indicate 'busy, please wait...', it just hangs frozen for an indeterminate period of time.
