Ideally we'd share the whole lot between stdio/TUI/GUI. That said, I
think stdio currently has a bunch of features that the other lack (my

I really have no idea what you're talking about; this is because I've
just _never_ seen TUI mode. I exclusively use stdio.

When I did the LBR coverage stuff I only did stdio; at the time we
talked about merging all this further, and IIRC you said you had
something like that on the TODO already so I left it there.

Yes, I think that's the right direction, but I fear there's quite a bit
of work before we're at that point.

My only fear is that the resulting output code will be impenetrable,
there's a reason I only ever touch stdio output :/
