I'll guarantee you that proposal would not have flown. ;)

The design of Talk or the design of maemo.org in general? Talk is  
simply going to be another subsection of maemo.org that will share the  
same look and design. The goal for maemo.org is to have all of the  
different "applications" (mediawiki, Bugzilla, gforge, Downloads,  
vBulletin, etc.) look and feel the same so that users wont be able to  
tell the difference between applications (at least by look). So Talk  
is going to look like the rest of maemo.org.

Well, my followup question: Could application entries on  
maemo.nokia.com basically being syndicated from Downloads? Same  
ratings, same comments, just a different interface. So the "certified"  
applications would be featured on maemo.nokia.com and any comment or  
ratings would just interface with maemo.org.
