Right.  And if you think about it, we're defining 'processors' as 'programs
that process the data', and all UNIX programs can be launched from the CLI
(many may not have CLI options, but they are still launchable from there).  So,
the basic windowlet/UI for a processor should include a way to manipulate its
command-line.  All UNIX programs, in fact, must work this way under Loci (and
probably fall under the locus type 'processor').
