Well, I'm not advocating all-code drawing! What I'm suggesting is a WYSIWYG editor like any other, but with a 1-to-1 script mapping for all the commands under the hood. If you want to generate an oval in code, go for it; but you can also create one using the oval tool (and edit it later in script if you change your mind).

As for plugins, that's not really integrated into the workflow in the way I'm envisioning. I shouldn't have to write heavy code just to experiment with a quick artistic idea! Think web development. It should be as simple as editing a JS file and refreshing the page.
