That wasn't an explanation at all.  You asked a question and I

Sorry, Lennart, but this is not an explanation, either.  It's just a
bunch of slogans and generalities.  If you can explain how to make a
tool with thousands of buttons easy to use, please do.  For starters,
how does one decide _easily_ which sequence of the thousands buttons
to press?

And btw, I don't agree that math can be very easy to use (although I
use it every day).
