Bottom-up synth programming

What do you think of this kind of software? One of the benefits of this approach (bottom-up programming in a functional language) is that you would have very little limitations. Also, some things would be more straightforward than in a complicated UI. You could build upon work of others, easily share your tones, etc.

The obvious downside is the lack of sensible defaults and hardware integration. Being able to get some kind of complicated effect or sound is nice, but if it takes you countless hours of tweaking your code, it's not very practical for composing actual music (plus, there is always the tyranny of too much choices).
