A bunch of gui-based featurebloated crap.

If I can't read the documentation through a text-only link, I won't read
it.  At best, I'll convert it to a text-based format, more likely I'll
just experiment with the program until it does what I want.

I'm sure I'm not the only one, especially on a project as hackerish as

-Robin, who uses lynx as his web browser almost exclusively (can't do
Java in lynx; Java sucks, but sometimes people's whole pages are written
in it).
