I agree with you both, and more features will mean more code weight, but I believe Paul hit the nail on the head. RAD. I have to spend too much time customizing page after page for the same things to use the extensions efficiently and get what I need for a DB/CMS management system that gives my clients what they want. Much more so than with ADDT.
Sortable lists, recordset as well as table management, and customizable transactions (like custom triggers) would take us a lot further forward.
