I can't envision a CRUD tool to be delivered to the end user (let's  
not compete with the frameworks who are going for the "entire  
application generation" story). However, I have several times during  
the development needed a tool were I could CRUD/Import/Export objects/ 
annotations/users/indexes... the ZMI was useful in that respect.
