And what about the usability issue for first time users that cannot figure
out how to open a video in Blender and start editing it?

- Maybe detecting first launch and proposing a "tour" of the interface for
basic functionalities.
- Or a prompt in the splash screen asking what task the user want to do and
directly jump to a specific screen layout.
- Or a better error message when opening an wrong file instead of " File
format is not supported in..." it could be something like: "The selected
file is not a Blender project file. This look to be a movie/image file, try
opening it in Blender UV/Image editor."
