+/-1  --  make it only as complicated as it should be in a standard app

+1 what I'm working on has it.  But I'll probably do my part to Excel :-)

     * Reverse auction website complete with live running site that 
serves as an example.  Its
likely others will adopt it as well.  Its simple, but not too simple, so 
you can get your mind around it
but its not so trivial that it doesn't require any complex logic.  It 
needs reports, it needs actions, it needs
database, I'm 3/4 of the way done with it.  And plan to incorporate it 
into my Cocoon presnetation with
Conrad D'Cruz in October.  It also will demonstrate skinning, branding, 
that kinda thing.  Most importantly
everyone knows about auction sites, not everyone knows about inventory 
management and Mfg sites.
