Is that the one in current unstable? it sucks, it uses the NSI whois
database as a default... and I think it can't do reverse lookups. At least
when I tried it told me this ripe-compatible feature was disabled for
ordinary whois databses (even though I was explicitely telling it to use
the ripe whois databse).
Allow me to introduce myself, I am a man of wealth and taste.
