Oh, shit...

"And it opens up really complex application development to people who never could have done this before."

I've seen what happens when you do this: when Unity3D, Unreal Engine et al were made free, it abruptly opened the floodgates to people who previously had been unable to make games - in the first instance this was due to the technical knowledge barrier, which put off the people who could not be bothered to learn, and in the second instance, it then removed the financial barrier ie: people had to be willing to pay for these engines.

The result was a flood of shiteware into the marketplaces, resulting in a lot of good games that had had a lot of time and effort poured into them vanishing beneath this deluge of crap.
