Oh, and IntelliSense (whether in Visual Studio, or not) comes to the rescue, giving you the info you seek at hand.
    Having tools does not excuse you from respecting conventions. End-user might not have Visual Studio and all those tools.
    And it is even faster, if the library is written in a smart, intuitive way and can be used without constant looking into the documentation.

    I don't consider the necessity to learn how to use given tool a problem at all. It's just how things work. And I certainly agree with you on the "smart" and "intuitive way".
    So I think I fail to see your point.
