Simple to do technically, but beyond the GPL implications it's also
perhaps a bit cumbersome in terms of usability.
LC is a good software development environment, but perhaps a bit much
for simple text editing.
I wonder if another option might be to make an Editor app which opens
the stack and unlocks the fields for editing, and then locks them again
With many of my clients we build custom authoring environments in
addition to the delivery environment for the end-user, and the modest
up-front investment almost always pays off very well over the life cycle
of what we're building together.
