I am, but I have taken a different approach: The console version idaw.exe
is in my experience 5-10 times faster (analizing) than the graphical
version (idag.exe).

My approach have been to patch the console as the output from the console
is somewhat poor as it is shown in ascii.  Yesterday I sent some patches
that makes the console support unicode and allows the xterm to be resized.
I am running ida in 132x43 which is nearly perfect except for some color
