This makes now sense. A commandline-app should be able to run without a gui, 
that means it should be able to run without any X-session. The first you are 
planning to do, the second you will not fulfill. Invoking the gui but hiding it 
will still require a graphical display. Even using QApplication will require 

You have to use different classes where the parent class does what you want in 
an abstract way and then you create one descending class that does it the cli-
way and one that does it the gui-way. And the you invoke these classes (and 
QCoreApplication/QApplication) depending on whether you want the gui or not.
