[tomboy-list] tomboy project idea

OK- this one is really out there- in fact it would be a separate project.
Tomboy is so addictive, and so appropriate as a sort of PIM application that
I believe it would be ideal in a handheld computer/smartphone environment.
You'd have a project that involves a tomboy application for handhelds, which
actually has the ability to sync with tomboy notes on the linux OS (this
'sync' would be optional)
Having Tomboy in your pocket would obviously be bliss.
Really nice extra features which might however be tough to integrate into
this idea would be for example for Tomboy to wiki-link to all other
applications according to certain monikers, say the subject of an agenda
entry in a calendar app, or the nickname entry in an address book record.
This way, Tomboy would not need to displace the functionality of other PIM
applications but would build on their strengths and add to them. I could
have a list of members of an assembly I am a part of stored in a tomboy
note, and instead of having to record demographics for each member- by
writing their nickname, I could click on the name from within tomboy and be
brought to the address book entry etc.
Come on- you have to admit this is a great idea. Please pass it on.
Also- add me to the mailing list if you don't mind. I am a fan of your
software- actually I think it is really an important and under-sung piece of
work. All by it's self it is reason enouph to go with a GNome desktop.
