I don't think that's a good idea. Let people do what they want with
the backend... That's what RAD is about.

If a framework has something particular to show about a particular
backend then let it use that backend. Otherwise, let it be purely a
matter for personal preference.

I don't think that we can use this exercise to compare performance or
anything like that... so there's no point being prescriptive about the
back end.

There is a point about being prescriptive about the front end. It's so
the applications look (broadly) the same.

By the end of next week I can probably have a timesheet tool up and
running with some HTML that we could use as story boards.
