No. it means to be able to play on the same instrument (the computer,
or a classical guitar) as much different alternate techniques,
repertroire from different era. Or to know as much possible on
something before

A piece of software is by no mean something as hard to master as an
instrument. the computer, with its sum of software, langage, etc, is
more related to what you are saying.

So yes, do your scales, and after 10 years of 8 hours a day you might
find CSound, Max/MSP, reaktor and any other version of those tools as
easy to learn as a pianist trained at the same discipline
