Generally I agree to that, but I could also imagine that
most people will look at the generated code just because of
curiosity and so (without having intended this themselves)
they will learn the syntax and some day they will realize
that they KNOW what code will appear BEFORE connecting the
graphical symbols and (probably) they will be proud of their
intelligence and write the code themselves now... :-)
