I understand your point about TCO, even though you don't make a very
good case for it.
Now for the Math, and why your TCO argument wasn't so good,

Developer $60K/year divided by the adopted 2080 man hours year (this is
the average hours work, 40 hour week, 5 days, etc...) = $28.85/hourly,
BidiBLAH:                       $10,000
Scripting class:                $350
6 man-weeks time:               $6924.00

Also add in the cost of hiring someone to cover that guys duties while
he is at class, and the figure is back to VK's estimate
