>such that things are so easy it seems like magic

if you (or someone out there who went to the lecture) would humor me, could
you answer three questions:

what are 'things'?

'so easy' for who? 
the coder?  the user?  the maintainer?

'seems like magic' to who?  
the coder?  the user?  the maintainer?

Oh, you want detail? 

Leverage your language/API design such that things are so easy it seems like
magic. Perl 6 looks like a good language.
