What we are doing is fairly similar.  We some what conciously came up
with a declaratory language in our GNUe Forms definition.

I think your bar is too high then.  I consider being able make a
master/detail relationship form that allows me to adhoc query select,
insert, update and delete without writing a line of code to be
non-trivial.  Now to add a bunch of "rules" yes you need procedural
code, but I see no real way around that.

Linas I believe continues to dismiss GNUe because he doesn't like
Python. That is of course my humble opinion.
