I think it makes sense to target developers... I think though that it 
will also take some sort of application, and not just code to really get 
people interested.
Plus, don't entirely discount the non-programmer aspect of the mac using 
market... the only reason I use FB now is because it made it to the 
"Street-Cred" section of "Wired"!  I wanted to program, but the C books 
were useless without hundreds of dollars of C language.  FB was only $50 
at the time, so I figured - can't really lose with that price.
Anyway, it was relatively easy to use, and I began to hang out at 
"developer" places and lists.  However, I never even went to those places 
before I owned FB.
Point of the story is that I think there are pleanty of people who run 
macs who would like them to do some basic things - and apple script isn't 
cutting it - that might just spark to FB.

Just my opinion :-)
