It would be fantastic if Accordance could enable, from the contextual click menu items, the ability to create Principal Part or Binyan Lists. For example, contextual click on a given lemma, Accordance then parses out the verbal root into its respective verbal inflected forms.

It would not be hard to list all the forms found in that text, but if you wanted the complete paradigm for any word, where would we get that information?

From a given text, yes, just pull in the forms attested. For those not attested in the corpus, it's possible to do create the form from morphological principles. One could reverse engineer a morphological tagging Script for production. I did this last summer. Agglutinative languages are much easy to produce, and such production could be immediately hyperlinked with a Search All, so as to run it through various other corpora. In addition, should a metadata tag of a texts date be included, Accordance could create a diachronic word frequency chart to boot! :D
