You can always make a CLI from a Web management CGI. See the "client"
program with Squid or any other CLI Web client like GNU's wget or like
url_get (or the libwww if you use Perl).

Advantage of Web management: it works both with managers (who use
Netscape Platinum Extra 64) and with administrators (who write a custom
Perl script launched from cron to page them if there is a trouble). It
works from any management box (unlike $$$-burners like NetView or
SunNetManager). Apache or Squid use it nicely. For programmers, it's
easier to provide a Web management interface than a SNMP interface.
