Perhaps I should be more elaborate:

This is clearly a bad excuse. (Woohoo!)

It seems to be a matter of taste. I personally had no problems
with the Blender source code. From the first glance at it to my
first finished project (Audio sequencer stuff) took me about 2
days. I'm not saying that I'm necessarily a genius, but I guess
it depends on how much effort you want to spend on a project, and
how much it represents your own style of doing things.

Re-coding or "re-implementing" half of the Blender code base
to make it "more attractive to [coding] newbies" is just as
pointless (in my opinion) as making the UI more newbie-friendly.

Blender's code is not for first-day "Hello World\n" coders.

(That doesn't necessarily imply that you are one, it's just
a generic statement).
