Yes, exactly.

Non-technical users should be given a (G)UI that's more intuitive for
the kind of work they do, _or_ they should be trained suitably so that
they will no longer be classified as "non-technical users".

Note that I am what I think most people would call an experienct
"technical" user, however most of the time I use PCL-CVS as a front-end
to CVS.  I only use the command line when I have unique requirements
that are not easy/possible to do with PCL-CVS.

I.e. even technical users can sometimes make better use of their tools
when they are given an integrated environment.
