I second this way of thinking.
I'm not a Sugar developer, but I'm willing to learn.
Knowing that things are achievable with various libraries (Qt/GTK) or
technologies (Gecko/WebKit) is key in feeling that I can choose my own
path, or switch to the one that's easier for me (because I met a pygtk
developer last week, or a Qt fan yesterday, etc.)
To leave doors open is another way of lowering the entrance barriers.
What goes into the Sugar core system is another issue IMHO.
