There is nothing about a data-centric view that means you need one megalithic 
app to do everything.  Your desire for such a program is, in fact, APPLICATION 
CENTRIC.  This is a far dumber trend in contemporary interfaces (eg, both kinds 
of IDE or any other package software with the word "integrated" in it) than 
anything to do with the web.

I really hope never to see the day of the "Integrated Data Browsing and 
Retrieval Environment".  mc is a nice lite highly functional filebrowser.  The 
world does not need more BLOATWARE.
