Ed, there are a few people at our space who'd be interested in this discussion as we're looking at developing a system including Seltzer for our own use. We're currently gearing up using paper, spreadsheets, lots of forms and GNUCash.  

By chance have you talked to the Space Federation (umbrella organization in which not a few makers spaces are taking part) folks out of Milwaukee? (http://schoolfactory.org/spacefed) I think that they're thinking the same thing long term.

Different ones are good for different things, and it seems like there's not one that works well for everyone. Seltzer is at a point where it's useful, but I'm not sure whether it makes more sense to continue adding features, move to another project, or start a new one.
