it'd be a shame to do that. I know some of the PHB's involved(or formerly involved) in the evo team and they're good folks.

You know the old saying, "the road to ruin's paved with good intent". IME,
that's a prime source of feature bloat. When I started using GNOME back in
the 1.2 days, I was sold on the idea of a component-based architecture
which I saw as following the Unix philosophy of combining a number of
small, specialist programs to perform an overall task. So we had Balsa as
the MUA and GNOME Pim providing calendar, appointments and address book. It looks that philosophy has been over-turned as bloatware and plagerism seem to rule supreme ATM. very, very sad IMO.
