Hi :)
It looks like most of this can be done without touching Base itself?  Is LO able to use databases 
in this way already?  Is it something that could be passed to the devs list an/or the BoD 
discussion list?  Something like this could be phrased to capture the imagination,  Saying it's the 
old way might put them off.
Regards from
Tom :)

I use to use Base like this. I connect a Base document to HSQL 2.8 databases with forms and reports on the desktop (spreadsheet reports are sufficient for us). The Base container is nothing but a configuration file storing the connection URL, SQL query strings and the default log-in (and I left some rarely used admin forms in it).
My users do not know anything about the database document.
The content of the database document could be some XML and query strings in the configuration tree (just like it used to be in OOo 1).
