Then the user can just accuse himself of being lazy.

I don't say I'm sure about anything here, because we are talking about
very empirical matters.  But I'm under this impression.

And it's not as if you could consider the Emacs-learning-curve
independantly of this-feature-learning-curve.  For example, if someone
gets impressed by what Gnus can achieve, then learning Gnus and learning
Emacs overlap to a great extent.  

So if someone wants a feature and is ready to learn about it, I guess it
also mean he's ready to learn about Emacs in general.
