but again: it's a tool, which you must run from the command-line. you
probably will need to teach your average windows user how to open (and
use!) a terminal before they can start using it.

i was not asking anybody to learn tcl/tk and implement that feature.
"thinking through" is mostly about how this feature actually should work
in the user-interface, things it should do and things it should not do.
"thinking through" is something everybody can do who can imagine the
requested feature. since you raised the request, i think you qualify.

desire-data once had this "do what i want" menu-entry that would do
whatever you wanted. that's a prime example of what you can achieve by
thinking things through.
