I agree!

I am not aware of any GMP client that could do all this (I think jago can
do most things apart from loading a .sgf-game). I think GoGui can
do what you want, however this client is still work in progress as far
as I can tell. Or you could hope that these features could get
implemented in future versions of ggo...(a very nice client!) (With the
new GTP protocol replacing GMP, this should all be a little more
convenient for clients to implement).
