Of course you are right but there could be a situation
where speed doesn't matter: imagine a student who tries
to teach herself/himself the syntax of BaSH skripts and
by using that module she/he would ba able to plug together
the modules and at the same time SEE THE RESULTING SKRIPT
appearing step by step in a little command window.

Perhaps the graphical BaSH command generator could make
people understand the way code such should be written
and probably (after a short training phase) they would
soon ignore the existence of that tool and write their
own code - once they have learned how to do it.
