if they are, then someone fumbled badly on the dates app.

last time i tried it (and it have not been updated since) i could move things 
on the "month" view (even tho the elements are so small there that i dont know 
what i was poking at) and the appointments could become to small to properly 
handle "day" view (and that they could be rezised by dragging at the edges 
didnt help, so i ended up accidentaly resizing or moving them around when 
trying to access the detailed dialog for a entry).

and as it also had issues with timezones (basically ignoring them), i got to 
say it was much worse then GPE.

future, just because the modest devs seem to have a fetish for IMAP and
