It's been many years since I programmed, but I can assure you that it is not as simple as you claim it is.

I don't think I said it was easy. I was claiming that with good DB practices it would be reasonably possible to provide different front ends for the same data. Many web sites (which are really just another database) already do this.

Without those practices (which I suspect is the case here at TMF), providing different large screen (i.e. computer) and small screen (i.e. iPod, etc.) fronts ends is difficult to impossible.
