It is not the case.
For example, to define a new class, the unique way to do this is from
Smalltalk itself, with the message
#subclass:instanceVariableNames:classVariableNames:category: sent to the
parent class.

The GUI, just makes it more transparent, but it is pure Smalltalk code.
Well it can't be different as the GUI is written in Smalltalk :)
