After the long round of discussions about application development,
and what database interfaces one should use, and what programming
languages one should use, and etc. etc.  and, more narrowly, my
part in adding to the confusion,  I've revamped the theory and
movitation sections of the two projects I am trying to work on.

There's no easy way to summarize the conclusions, other than to 
say that one reason that PHP/Java/etc. web applications are booming
is that it is still very hard to write multi-user distributed
Desktop Applications (Gnome or KDE or Microsoft, for that matter).

My little contributions to making desktop app developments easier,
as well as sideways response to Pennington's 'Java, Mono, C++'
article, are now expounded and expanded on at:
