Do you see any use of GUIs? I personally find I benefit from the visual component when I want to verify changes to avoid mistakes. While you can do this on the command line, I much prefer a visual tool.

Does this fall in the category of evil wizards?

I think if it's a tool that helps you do something more efficiently, then great.

I'll use a visual tool for diffs or complex tree visualizations. But really that tool is just GitHub.

It's when you're using a tool to do something you can't do on your own, then it falls into the category of evil wizards.
