It is not about graphics per se but about the mindset with which learners
approach computing. The noise in the environment today is around digicams and
graphics editing. It is hard to draw attention to scripting capabilities above
this din :-(.
It is like the early days when a movie camera was used to shoot only staged
plays. It took some time before videographers digested its potential and moved
onto outdoors, compositing etc.
