I addressed your comment directly in the post just 1 paragraph later:

I've heard a counterpoint that some concepts can't even be explained briefly in Ellie because they depend on having multiple files. Examples include the Elm module system itself and opaque types. My response to this is is just that the number of concepts in this category is pretty small and I'd rather Ellie be unusable in this small set of cases than split the focus of Ellie between concise conversation and large projects, making it worse at both.
