About the interface, it'd be nice to have something mc-ish. (mc = Midnight
Commander; get it and take a look if you don't have it, there's a Debian
package for it). It's got pull-down menus and dialog boxes... it's very
nice, supports gpm mice and is something DOS people will recognize
instantly. 

And since mc is GPL'ed, we could borrow their low-level
interface code. Would save quite a bit of coding work and would make for a
nice interface, IMHO at least.
