I beta tested the code and was really pleased with it. The learning
curve isn't that bad and as long as your are using the built in
routines you really do not need to know much IDL programming. I do
agree with David Fanning that this opens up more consulting
opportunities on extending VIP with user built code!
My personal perception is that VIP is meant as a middle gound between
Insight and straight IDL programming.
