At the moment, yes.  When Unity first came out I was disappointed to 
discover that it was not based on simple text conf files as is usual in 
gnu/linux.  Things are moving though.  
shows use of a python class library to take much of the pain out of lens 
scripting.  It won't be long before somebody comes up with a gui ide 
that builds a lens using drag-n-drop or similar.  It's the kind of thing 
I'd have tackled myself when I was younger.

I'm prepared to wait - Unity is perfectly usable as is - and that 
doesn't seem to be the case with Windows 8 according to all the reports.

Regards,        Barry.
