My impression is that you do not wish it be accessible.

There currently is no way to use Drupal without modifying code.  Period.

The ease of use score for Drupal would have to be considered very low,
compared to other CMS tools.  It's range of functionality is far greater, of
course, but not for the average, download-and-install user, or even the
generic site user, who doesn't even manage the Drupal installation.

The chief barrier to fully marrying Drupal is the ongoing code-writing that
must be done:  even themes are written in PHP, and once you add a module,
you must immediately begin PHP training.

How do you propose that any Drupal user (not developer, just a user) "keep
their hands out of the code"?
