I would agree with that. When I had to learn APL at university, I hated 
it because it was like typing hieroglyphics. Finally I bought the manual 
and learned what I was doing, and realized that it was pretty neat. The 
hitch was that you had to have a special keyboard for all the 
hieroglyphics, although one could probably write an interface for a 
QWERTY (or other layout) and use the appropriate character set.
