Arguing against the developer's/maintainer's freedom of choice based on
a "feeling" about the learning curve imposed on an intangible group of
future contributors is faulty.  People that really want to contribute
will simply take the time and effort to learn.  If they aren't
able to sufficiently educate themselves, then they weren't really
qualified to participate anyway, so it's not really a net loss.

Best wishes,
