I'd say that learning to use the libraries that WordPress is using
won't be that hard. I mean you learnt to use the plugin API as
well, no? its not similar to other blogging systems if I'm not
wrong, so why the fuss over the client-side API? its not mandatory
afterall, you can take it as an expansion to the plugin API if you
want & learn it if you want to make use of it in your blog, else you
can just leave it.

yeah well, you can say that!! :) every coin has two sides. ;) using a 
used library has its pros as well as cons!! its just a matter of 
weighing the
pros & cons to determine the correct library!! :)
