That's not the toolkit approach: it's just scripting within an integrated tool. Toolkits work well with other toolkits, so gEDA works with the simple, classic UNIX tools like make and AWK, as well as things like LaTeX. With gEDA, once you've captured the design with gschem, you never need to use GUI at all to make data products like netlists, BOM, simulation outputs, and documentation.
