I also voted for you being here, although my comment was and is:

I really think liqbase should concentrate all efforts in doing what does
best: taking notes combined with produced or captured images. My vote
goes here hoping Gary gets more developers for that core purpose.

Since Gary will probably not be convinced about concentrating in 2 tasks
and forgetting about there rest until they are top notch... liqbase will
surely benefit from an architecture where a core engine works together
with independent plugins.

Then we will help as much as possible Gary & co fine tuning the
'sketching' and 'capturing' plugins, so Maemo end user don't have to
bother about the intermediate menus and the micro-demos/features
currently flying around the core purposethat has brought this little
success to liqbase.
