It's sad that Pimlico Suite is not developed actively, although only
rated "bad" at the wiki I think this is the best fitting set of
applications as PIM Suite for Internet Tablets.
- They are designed for devices with small screens
  - I would even use them on my desktop as well if more mature
- Pimlico Dates, Contacts, Tasks use Evolution Data Server 
  - Therefore all that evolution currently is capable of is possible
- Pimlico does mostly need GUI programming, the backend is already there
- There is a basic start of a sync application

Personally I would really like to replace evolution with modest,
contacts, dates and tasks on my desktop. In my opinon the logical way
would be to go with pimlico.

However there is one more important thing that evolution-data-server
needs. The ability to sync, without those weird syncml servers.

I will put my points into the wiki as soon as I can.
