Thank you!

Well, basically I rewrote everything, there's nothing in common. The
original application was written in Delphi, using Paradox tables, no
i18n, no multiuser, no PDF printouts... On the other hand, with Python
is far easier to get something working, and databasing with SQLAlchemy
is a pleasure. On the frontend, ExtJS is impressive, even if it has its
own drawbacks.

Yes, absolutely. You learn something that you can reuse over and over.

Do not hesitate to ask for further hints.

ciao, lele.
