I agree to an extend. The hardest part for me starting out were the many  
many different ways of doing one thing. That can be nice, but also pretty  
confusing at first. I also had some trouble (at first) finding the place  
to edit my template TS and stuff; I guess it takes getting used to, but I  
am sure there can be made improvements.
These things are already planned for 4.5 / 5.0, so I think Kasper and co  
are aware of the problems. :)
