Some way yes. But there is only idea to hide some features (it's all 
about frontend).
My mind is a bit further. Let's hide some ok, but make programmer able 
to prepare panel for casual user. Lets say SQL table has password field. 
I would like to configure casual-user panel to know, that when user 
inserts a row, password=md5(salt + login). So user just inserts row, and 
dont care logic that is over SQL.
