There are command line apps in comps, but not in all sections. For example 
there are some in the "Hardware Support", "System Tools", "Development Tools",
there could be in "Engineering and Scientific". There are mathematical 
libraries in "Engineering and Scientific". That's because what is an ordinary
user depends on the comps section.

And I think it is right to add more command line apps if they fit in a 
section intended for system administrators, developers or scientists.
