% is short for everyline. saves two keystrokes!!

to the OP, I don't know of one, but wouldn't be surprised if it
exists. Maybe there is something appropriate on usenet?

What I find interesting is the movement (one that I'm caught up in) to
a more CLI based operation the X environment. Using xmonad, wmii or

COnnecting witha community like that may suit your needs more. X is
still involved and pertinent, but it is not the focus so much as it
would be within a more general user community like this.
