Exactly.  If a CLI program is not used regularly, it is easy to forget 
the exact spelling or syntax if it's not in the menu, even for a 
programmer like myself.
So I add almost all programs installed to the menu, if missing.
A lot of CLI programs have internal menus, and thus are readily usable 
by even novice users.
