Sin 17:13, 4 May 2008 (CEST): Would unified theming (something like qtcurve) belong here? How about another high-level service, a web browser element (webkit) that can be used from any application?
Mickey: Unified theming is an application level thing, the framework has no idea about UI. To put it to the extreme, the framework services should allow you to write a feature phone UI in ncurses, if you want :) Same goes for web browsing, while being super important nowadays, this is clearly application level framework, not services level.
Akonadi - The PIM Storage Service Mission Statement We intend to design an extensible cross-desktop storage service for PIM data and meta data providing concurrent read, write, and query access. It will provide unique desktop wide object identification and retrieval.
Mickey: Akonadi seems huge. It uses kdelibs, tries to integrate a lot (much more than we need) and I don't see any sign of a dbus API.
