I'm all for going proper framework on an proper accounting package like 

You offload so much gruntwork to a way bigger team.


Way easier to install usually, as an established framework has long 
figured out the solid moving parts.

Attracts more random contributor traffic to the project, people that 
discover LSMB because they are doing something else with the framework.

Very likely more benefits. Sum of totals in my mind overcome most 
drawbacks in already semi-long timeframe (up to 18 months).

Secretly I'm dreaming of a proper accounting package built on top of 
WordPress CMS presentation system... but sssssh don't tell anyone, I 
don't want rotten PHP eggs flying just yet. WP could probably replaced 
with another established CMS framework that allows easy custom db models 
being added, but right now I'm very in tune with how much easier it 
would to build a mindblowing accounting *user experience* there. Also 
for your Efficito hosting business, WordPress' multi-site provisioning 
capability is quite possibly unmatched by anything.


Looking forward to getting my own SQL-Ledger 2.6.37 -> LSMB migration 
going one of these weeks now, so I could actually know what I'm talking 
about ;) All I got right now is "SL's user experience is just a 
horrible, horrible thing".
