Am happy to share - it's all very simple stuff, the elements just work 
very elegantly together. I'm stringing other people's pearls here - the 
tools are great, putting them together is trivial.

However, having got the elements together, I'm now moving from a TTW 
approach (yes, I know - I'm a dinosaur!) to a Product approach, which is 
going to be a pretty steep learning curve for me. I need to document my 
starting point (which is effectively a common folder of scripts and 
templates, which the working pages access by acquisition), so I'll post 
a link to the list asking for feedback when I'm at that point.

N.B. This is going to take me at least a couple of weeks - I've got some 
paying work to finish off before I can move on to that.

I've got a "proof of concept" set of templates without Formulator or any 
RDBMS interaction that I did somewhere. It's only about three templates 
and a scrip. I'll post them when I find them, so that you can see how 
Taconite works with ZPTs, which is the most joyful part of it for me.
