forcing the user to learn all the invocations she needs to get stuff done. It's slower


It may take longer to learn, but can often be much faster to use in practice. Plus, cwm gives visual feedback by narrowing your choices to those selected by your search input. So this does not equate with a return to the command line where your argument is more applicable.
