Some of that excellent post is even bigger than making a FileMaker clone:
I can think of few things that would deliver a higher ROI than having
input filter and display format properties for fields.
Very few apps *don't* need those, and for all the ostensible "ease" of
programming with LiveCode, once newcomers see how tedious it is to have
to hand-craft solutions for these sorts of things that so many other
tools have built-in, it's kind of a turn off.
