Why not make it "all-in-one"? If the user wants to interact via command line interface he would just need to type "ghb -cli + <options>" (example)... Otherwise the G.U.I. interface is loaded with all of its controls...

The CLI is a common codebase across the 3 platforms. No good reason to replicate that already solved problem in 3 different GUIs.
