Imitating VB6 might be the wrong direction for a lot of people here. I can see the point for devs, but not "Joe public" who has no desire to actually program.

Most quick app needs for the common person trying to find better ways to do their job, in my experience, tend to be of the "I want to collect or collate some data and output some reports" and for that Access might be the better starting model, maybe taking some UX inspiration from the way people use/abuse Excel in similar contexts.

Cool project though, don't let my thoughts (which could easily be quite wrong) stop you, especially if your target is people who do (or want to) dev a bit rather than people who would prefer not.
