That's not to say the rest is easy, but modesetting is usually more complicated than you'd think, for something which sounds so trivial.
Also it tends to require more hardware-specific hacks. At least with 3D rendering, you can see if it works and then it's likely to work the same on all boards with the same generation GPU. The same can't be said for modesetting.
Finally, modesetting is very important, but it's not as much fun as rendering.
