I think it depends on which "level" you're talking about, concurrency IS very 
easy and "natural" at a conceptual level. It's also quite easy for doing 
basic stuff ... but it can become very complicated if you introduce different 
requirements and/or the system becomes complex and/or you're going to 
implement the actual mechanism.

That's my limited experience (personally, I really like concurrency ... and 
to be honest, some people can't really understand the concept at all while 
others have no problem so it's a "personal thing" also)
