That's something that $TCA already provides. IMO with 5.X this might
even be more simple.

don't know about that because it is very detailed.

you can do that in 4.x already. you don't have to use FCE's.

Afaik the separation of BE and FE will be dropped which should solve all
these kinds of problems

just make the width adjust to the column. that's no problem.

already possible in 4.X

That's a nice job for an extension. If you feel like ti you could create
it as a feature request for http://www.hackcontest.org ;)

we'll see about that ... ;)

I don't know if I understood you right all the time. anyway work for
TYPO3 5.0 IMO is still at the very basic foundation level. That is the
framework is being build up. I am pretty sure 5.X will really give us
very much power and enable us to build individual stuff very efficiently.
