Even for development, it helps to get faster the overall picture how the
simulation works, you can play with things and so on. Then if you get in
the c++ code, you at least know how it relates to the rest of yade.

(That's my experience -- I actually understood yade when doing the
python wrapper, if I remember. I know I should't extrapolate, that's

Then, when you work in c++, it help also in debugging: you can instantly
look what are internal variables of you interactions, how they develop,
you can have a loop that changes some parameter every few iterations and
so on.
