Yes! Yes! Yes! IMO, this is the only UI which adequately supports the
database transaction model. While editing in place in grids is fun RAD, it
does not fly for long. (Promoting this technique without cautions about why
is does not work well in many situations is one of the biggest disservices
that Borland has committed over the past few years. Shame on them!)
