The “difficult learning curve” is minimal in some important 
simple scenarios. Try this one
for example.

Excellent explanation...

Who specifically are the typical end users you are designing this software for?  I am thinking there is a difficult learning curve, therefore, requiring a  highly developed sense of technical intuition ... patience, and persistence... ergo, limiting your audience to sophisticated academic / technical people.

My experience with the user interface and minimal documentation seems to confirm this.

If this is true, then I will lower my expectations regarding "ease-of-use" issues. 

I fully understand the "big-picture" concept of what "you" want to achieve -and- I dream it will become a reality. I hope it will be useful to some level of ordinary folks like my highly intelligent neighbor who doesn't know the difference between a quirk and a quark and thinks a neutrino is an old Ford automobile.
