Shouldn't this weapon count as exotic?

I'd decided this weapon was similar to a crossbow. In D&D, crossbows are Simple weapons (i.e., everyone is proficient in their use). My analysis on weapon groups in D&D and SWRPG has led me to the conclusion that weapons classified as Simple in D&D are usually Simple in SWRPG, while those that are Martial in D&D are Primitive in SWRPG. This doesn't cover 100% of the cases, of course, but it seems like the most accurate way for me to classify things. Thus, I decided to make the bolt-thrower a Simple weapon.
