Re: VB like RAD

We are working in a design for such a tool and would very much like to 
hear if some of the other tools of the like is thinking in providing this 
plugin driven multilanguage RAD tool for dummies. If so, we'd really like 
to contrib to your project.

If not, we'll go on and post our design in a few weeks.

P.S. "We" are a couple of friends just as unknown as myself.....
;-)    But that really doesnt mean we are no good.
