I agree, and I chose my words poorly for that point: "library/framework developers" is more accurate than "end user". And since I expect every GUI framework is going to need (or at least want) their own scheduler, not to mention all the cases of Python being embedded in other programs, there is some value in helping these developers to get it right by virtue of the design rather than relying on documentation.
