Sample: You have an object, that can be viewed and edited. This object 
will be extended by adding a further required field when editing it and 
would be of interest when viewing it. How much effort do you need to 
update all the views that reference it? To what degree can you reuse 
your views?
For such a change CForms is really bad. I had to update definitions, 
bindings, template so often!
