Yes, that is exactly what I mean, I want CRUD.  Such a facility doesn't
have to be beautiful, just functional.

I would love to see a simple version and then start enhancing it,
gradually adding things like XHR/AJAX for painless updates, pagination,

I bet if even a simple/primitive version of this were to land in an
official Grok release, people would start to use it and send suggestions
and enhancements (I, for one).

It would be a nice easy place to contribute because it is not part of the
core grok engine but rather just a bundled application/control panel.
