  1. "We don't need no CLI".

    The CLI will never go away. As a developer of routing-software the CLI is necessary. You want to quickly change your config. Quickly look at show commands. A developer can easily introduce new temporary show-commands. Or enhance existing commands. Or create new hidden commands. Easy tools while developing new code. If she/he had to do that via a GUI or some API, it would be harder to implement. And clumsy to use for quick testing and troubleshooting. So IMHO there will always be a CLI.

    That doesn't mean APIs or GUIs are not useful. Or not necessary. Of course they are. But that doesn't mean the CLI will go away at any time.
