I agree. But isn't that what I was saying? Such guides are for promoting
cross desktop adoption of standard tech. Help programmers see how it
works quickly? Or did it look like I was suggesting each person develop
independent libs?

I thought the recent Akonadi diagram on planet ubuntu was very useful.
Shame about the 'K' name of the project and the kde location of it's
code, would have been nice to have it on github/savanah/launchpad etc.
Save a lot of face for a lot of devels in other projects.

So who's up for ripping out EDS and replacing it with Akonadi for
Narwhal? OK maybe I do know Akonadi isn't a storage mechanism, but at
least we could wedge it between EDS and Evolution.
