Hmm, O.K, for the time being, I'll add a flag, which, if checked, will
ask the user for command line parameters and simply pass them on (after
variable substitution) to the program. This should serve most uses. What
do you think ?

I'm still inclined to do a Glade based design but that will take more
time and I guess can wait til after 1.0.1.

Ya - that's what I'm trying to rectify right now. Should have something
to show in a week or two. This is relatively big compared to the tools
implementation so might take a bit more time I'm afraid, so it might not
make it in time for 1.0.1.
