Indeed, the lead developer of Stack Overflow says reproducing the site's 
basic functionality is trivial:


But he also says that functionality is irrelevant without all of the 
other aspects of the site, which are non-trivial.

A linked article gets more into how this relates to common problems in 
open source communities focusing too much on the code and too little on

And that sounds a lot like what the Drupal community has been working 
hard to improve the last few years, so this might be a good opportunity 
to push that even further.
