Thanks for the reply, Steve. My thinking has followed a similar path to
yours, so it is good to have some validation.

I have decided that my next step will be to set up a server program as
discussed, and move all my authentication and business logic there,
then get a client program working using the same gui as at present, but
communicating with the server for most of the database stuff instead of
doing it by itself.

I am aware of Dabo, but I have not looked at it yet. I got my own
framework working before Dabo came along, and it works well enough for
my purposes, so I don't really want to go back and reinvent that wheel
at the moment.
