In my opinion, a project like Blender, as one of the (if not THE one) most
complex open-source projects in existance, is far beyond what a non-coder can
expect to handle.

It's a bit like allowing anyone to drive a car if there's a sheet on the
steering wheel telling them where the brake, accelerator, and coupling is
(or however that is called in English).
