As a regular user, I have no issues with CLI apps being available via HAM, so long as they had their own category as well as an adequate description of what the user would get. (Including simple usage instructions in the description isn't a bad idea either.)

But, I would be completely fine with CLI apps only being available via apt-get as well. CLI users already understand this process and regular usrs wouldn't miss anything -- and actually be required to learn a little something before installing a CLI app.
