What about AppDesigner?

Considering some of the scripting functionality that can be added to an interface now via Nicolas's StepTalk palette, it seems to me that Gorm can
be used for much more now that just designing/building interfaces.

Gorm could always be used for more than this. :) The StepTalk palette really just takes it one step further and allows you to do the coding in Gorm itself. I, however, wouldn't want to name it based on abilities given to it by a
palette which does not come with it by default.

I agree ... but I think it would be nice if such palettes *did* come with Gorm by default. Certainly it would be nice to have some sort of scripting and database palettes included (even if only very simple ones) ... it would help to differentiate Gorm from the interface generation tools out there, and show just how/why it is a superior technology.

As for the name change ... I'm obviously biased, having picked it in the first place, but I see no reason to change it and don't think any name will please everyone.
