All script tools, whether Python or not, have a validation class that can be edited. The Python script tool can be extended or customized more.

comment Developing a GIS viewer
@ryandalton, you are correct. I was thinking of the first arcexplorer. I should have researched it first.

comment Manipulating distances in python. Problem with ShapeLength
Try running your script but leave the spRef blank. This is to Project your data "on-the-fly". If your spRef is geographic, your units will be decimal degree. Without the spRef, your cursor lengths should match the attribute table shape.length. You can also convert units with an expression like this, !shape.length@feet!

comment How to rename points by clockwise direction or change starting point in polygon features?
Do you need to create new polygons so the vertex order starts in the Upper-Left or do you want a list of vertices, for each polygon, in the corrected order?

comment How to number polygons according to their spatial relationships?
Did you try sorting the centroid coordinates by Y, X descending? BTW, ArcGIS has a Sort tool that will sort the geometry as you describe.

Did you run DocDefragmenter.exe? It compacts the mxd. It is located in the same folder as mxdDoctor.exe.

comment Is there a way to change Table to Table import parameters in ArcCatalog?
If you prefer C# coding, can't you use ado.net to query the csv with something like select max(length("field1")) from table to get the maximum length of each csv field? If the max length is > 255 then edit the field properties of table_to_table.
