What about power users?

I think a fair argument against tomboy is that in my mind it breaks the unix philosophy by not being a modular application. Although various options can be called from the command line, when trying to script various tasks using tomboy I get unexpected results. For example I was unable to get notes to open up using cron (even using the display variable etc, other x apps loaded with no problem).
That being said I am not sure if this is because it is written in mono or if it is just because it is really meant to be just a gui application. I also still use tomboy because I have not found an alternative that suits my needs and I appreciate the developers work on this application.
