Neither.  You should seperate the front end and back end so that you can
add a CLI, a GUI, or even a library interface for other program without
needing to alter the back end.  Get it working solidly with a simple CLI
and get the interface well-defined and then add a fancy UI.  I'd go with
curses or slang.  I don't see what graphics has to add to such a program.
