The runtime performance is really good but the startup time and memory
consumption are a bit high. Of course the maemo port of tomboy is quite
old and probably with a newer version of tomboy and mono it might look
better. Also AOT compilation might help, but it didn't work for me.

You're right of course about the URLs. My fault. I'll look for the XML
schema, it could be very useful for testing my implementation.

Ok, then I'll just try to keep my eyes open and watch for changes. If
ever someone else will use it, I surely get feedback if something

Well, yea... I'll sleep over it, but I'm not sure if I can come up with
something better :) I think something like "CTomboy" is not really an
option, because people might think that it is was made by you (the
Tomboy-Guys) and that it is 100% compatible. But I think that my program
will be more something like Tomboy-Lite (feature-wise). For example I'm
not sure if there will ever be support for plug-ins etc.

I will. Thank you very much for your input. I very much appreciate
