Probably.  But I'm not sure GUI is the answer.

I'm file-oriented with my computing.  Doesn't matter if it's a text
file or openoffice file.  Bash is my IDE.  I know I'm odd. :-)

Now we're talking.  This is where history belongs for the end user,

that they lost.

I think it's a wishlist item, though, on Linux.  I've only heard of
something like this on Novell Netware.
