It probably can't.
Knowing what needs to be done to a sufficient level of details typically requires as much "bother" as dealing with text based commands. This is why some very fancy GUI applications still have command line interfaces. If you need precision and repeatability, pointing and clicking probably isn't going to cut it.
A GUI typically forces you to do a lot of busy work over and over again.
A CLI tends to avoid that. Do it once and let the machine do it on it's own after that.
GUIs tend to automate poorly because they tend to be designed with the expectation that everyone is a trained monkey unwilling to work, or think, or plan ahead.
