And how is being imperfect an argument for giving up ones ideas?

Besides, all source code for all applications is available. As much of Sugar as possible was coded in Python, not the least to allow tinkering. The Etoys activity even comes with a full Smalltalk IDE (you know, the one that inspired countless other IDEs including Eclipse). That's the direction we prefer to explore. But even then we don't prevent others from exploring other directions.
