Are you sure ?
IMHO, C compilers (Code Warrior, Visual C...) are scary...
But not C, nor assembler.
Futhermore, Rev is scary, especially when you're used to the
"vintage" MetaCard IDE... ;-) just kidding of course...
More seriously, when using certain transcript commands, it feels
very close from using APIs or C librairies...
And C still allows you to develop things you can't even dream to
do with Rev (like networked realtime interactive 3D graphics,
realtime FFTs and other sound / image processing, high end
scientific / statistic calculations...).
Actually, the association between Rev (for front ends and a lot of
other tasks) and externals written in C is a killer...
Just my 2 cts.
