I partially agree with it.
Even with having TAB-completion mechanism in ROOT many people/users have "nostalgia" about the shortest as possible commands and pretty good online help of KUIP/PAW. In general, it's possible to revitalize KUIP inside CINT/ROOT because most of the PAW commands can be easily "translated" into ROOT ones.

Why not to "convert opportunistic enthutsiasm" into creativity :-)
