I just got through a project using Gadfly.  Unfortunately, Gadfly's client/
server model doesn't work too well under the mac.  Perhaps some investigation
would have found a solution, but my client went with Filemaker instead.

If you somehow manage to hook up to mysql or other databases running on
a unix server, I'd be interested for information's sake.
