Go for it. Its there for all to see and use at their desire. I am redoing the svg safecoin symbol and when I have done that I will translate that into SCAD as a module. That way it is more understandable and easy to modify than a set of points which incidentally has errors in it.
SCAD, well I found it after I got my 3D printer. So about 3 months. But hey I've been programming for over 40 years and that helps a lot. The hardest thing you will find is that the variables are not set at run time but at load time.
Also I find the cheat sheet very valuable http://www.openscad.org/cheatsheet/index.html
And the doco fills in any gaps http://www.openscad.org/documentation.html?version=2016.11.11
