With the prevalence of KiXforms and IE GUIs, do we really need the Console API functions Box, Color, etc.? Those functions effective break kix's stdout. IMHO, choosing between stdout and the console api stuff, I'll take stdout every time.

If I want to create a rich GUI experience via kix, I'm using kixforms, not prettifying a console box. Maybe I'm just out of the loop here but how many people actually use color, box, at, big, etc. to display real information to the user?

Having said that, what are the chances that Ruud will deprecate the console commands and go back to using stdout for console display?
