Personally, I'm rather interested in Base. Perhaps, if it's non-evil and
plays well with DB permissions, views, etc, it'll let me give my users a
nicer UI than a PHP web app for some of our inhouse databases.

If you use the ooobuild versions of OO.o, you'll get a MUCH nicer app
indeed. Versions of 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 ship with FC3, Debian Sarge, etc.
http://ooo.ximian.com/ . I haven't tried their 2.0-pre builds yet, but
they should be interesting.
