Thanks Jerry.  Just so you know, I already purchased Rodeo for it's  

I guess your answer falls into the category mentioned in my original  
email of "it's early days yet" and that's fine.  I looked at the  
countdown to release link and I'l wait with "bated" breath for July  
27th when the data objects are scheduled for release, that's one of my  
major concerns right now although I'm guessing there won;t be any  
sqlite connectivity.

I agree with your philosophy of trying to keep things simpler and also  
agree that Revolution can be phenomenally difficult to comprehend,  
especially for new users, but sometimes complexity is the price you  
have to pay for power - a delicate balance!
