One of the great strengths of GNU Radio is that it opens the entire technology stack, from the FPGA all the way up to the GUI. You can optimize your application across the whole stack, putting each function where it makes the most sense. This contrasts with the usual approach where application developers are encouraged put everything in one layer.

Verilog is no more difficult or mysterious than C++, wxPython, autotools etc.
