Again, i'm just playing around with various options.

I have *serious* doubts we are going to be design a good UI by simply
talking about it here.
In fact, i'd -1 any discussions of this feature that have no real
implementations behind them to try.

I believe that's one of the ways we got into this problem of
ridiculously long command lines in the first plcae.

Again, i believe it's way too early for a design doc. You need to have
some idea of what kind of ui you actually want before you can work up a
design doc.

How the heck are you supposed to decide what UI's work if you can't try
them in a real world situation?

That's fine.
