As you said, it is too soon to be talking about this. But I want to say
this :). I think that the tools should be seperate, and that the tool
itself should determine wether to use GTK or ncurses. Something like
this could be used, if we use python:
except RuntimeException, e:
""" no gui, using ncurses """
An ofcourse we offer two options, for instance -g and -n to force GTK or
ncurses (if available).
Yet another argument against a precompiled language like c or c++ but it
is really too soon to be talking about this :)
