Seems to me that...
- easier, more reliable installation
- easy-to-use cross-bar intercommunication among aps
- intuitive interfaces
are all worth pursuing. Anything that can be done to make the tools
invisible, will result in better music.
From my experience, code bloat is generally the result of throughlessly
piling too many layers of pre-cooked software on top of one another. I've
seen some beautiful GUIs done in only a few tens of kilobytes.
