That would work for a handful of objects, but not for the dozens of 
objects I might want to bring in as an overlay file. For example, I 
recently worked a marathon event that had 26 mile markers and about 
18 aid stations. I had those locations plotted out on a map, but not 
in a format that UI-View nor APRSIS/32 understood.

There is nothing trivial about manually and repetitively clicking and 
filling out dialog boxes when I already have the data in .GPX or some 
other GPS or map program format.
