Not so bad with no docs and only example code to work with. Basic Docs
exist now.

I think proper documentation will go a long ways towards making it
easier and simpler. It takes some people longer to figure out the hooks
system and FormAPI and they're sorta well documented (I think we miss
out on a lot of 'theory of operation' in our docs... and focus on the
syntax and behavior.) 

Plus it can still take better advantage of FormAPI than it does
currently. It was originally designed pre-FormAPI if I remember
correctly. Then there were only api hooks to work with. It still has
that mindset in many parts of its core.
