Any time, you change the behavior of an application you are programming. The language in which you are programming the changes may be more or less constrained, but it is programming nevertheless. The more configurability you intend to offer users, by definition, the fewer constraints you can afford to place on the configuration of the system, and so the more sophisticated the programming environment needs to become.
