I think the mini-audicle user-interface element thingies that are there on
Mac right now and will be here for Win and Linux sometime soon-ish would
come quite close to something like that? I'm not a 100% certain about what
Reactor does and doesn't do there but I imagine that the more advanced and
configurable it gets the less "effortless" it would be...
If it would also support

I don't think that would be one of the harder things to get but it might
break some cross-platform compatibility if people start referring to fonts
that might belong to a specific OS in their ChucK files.

Screen readers are aids for people with bad or no eyesight, right? That
might be a interesting concept. It could be argued/ studied that programing
languages as a musical interface might get around some of the limitations
for visually impaired people caused by the recent developments in graphical
interfaces. Might be a interesting point for Ge's research? Personally I'm
very skeptical about the benefits of all those fancy graphics commercial
synth programs for people with perfect sight as well; it seems to distract
from the sound.
Keyboard reading we have already, by the way, I'd say you are getting quite
close to your heaven!
