You are right. This is a experiment, don;t take it out of proportion.

I am lost here now :)
Why we are talking about use pippy for professional work?
If you want teach some kids to develop a web site, is ok, but Sugar is not
designed to be
a production environment, in the same way that Eclipse is not designed to
tech math.
Why should we want teach Flask or Django to kids from 6 to 12 years old?
