I like your ideas 1-3, although I think Booch Diagrams do some of the things 
you've been hoping to see in CASE.

I would vote for Python as a prototyping language.  You can use Tk with 
Python, Python also has a Postgres binding, I think it's a superior language, 
and can take us further before we may need to switch to another language, and 
another group is working on bindings from Python to UxF, which has been 
suggested as a data-exchange format for Freecase.
