Nathan simply irritated me with his "primitive by comparison" statement.
I'm tempted to delineate the features of the interface I demoed which are not fully apparent at first blush which I think would justify my assessment about other design patterns being "primitive by comparison", but I don't want this discussion to be tedious for anyone.
My main point is that database inquiry and maintenance activities within broadly scoped business systems for real users calls for a level of sophistication that is not trivial from a design perspective. So, why are we constantly fielding questions asking for easy solutions for database maintenance, rather than understanding that sophisticated frameworks are in order?
