Depends on what you mean by "quick" and "small". Do you mean that the
program should execute fast and have a small memmory foot-print? If so,
I agree. If what you mean is that the programmer should be able to
finish the project quickly and it shouldn't have too many lines of code,
then I think those features are important.

That's scary, that you need advanced knowledge just to do IO.

I don't know what you mean by that.
