Actually, no, it's not nonsense at all. In fact it's a very good argument!
Of course you can do everything you can do with mutt also with telnet
to port 110. It's not /what/ you can do but /how/.
Not at all analogous...
 what? Difference? Yes. Advantage? Not necessarily...
What, "extended functionality," are you referring to,
Jason R. DePriest described the difference between a simple command
you run and a SFTP/SCP client quite well in .
If you still don't know what he's talking about, I refer you to the
man page of yafc or lftp for example.
Yes, why bother explaining yourself...
Again, this tells you nothing other than sftp gives you a shell. BFD!
ssh gives you a frigging shell...
besides a graphical user interface?
GUI? What are you talking about?
Neither of these are particularly compelling...
