I too had never heard of Pimlico (apart from the London suburb of the 
same name, and the old Ealing comedy "Passport to Pimlico" :-) but it 
doesn't appear in my Apps list, so presumably there is a repo to add.

However, GPE is working fine for me right now, apart from its 
incompatibility with the LCARS theme (which I posted about before) and 
the fact that it cannot properly handle timezones.

This last one is a close-to-showstopper for anyone who travels a lot: I 
need to be able to put in my flight and set the timezone of the arrival 
time (and the times of my meetings in the destination zone) so that when 
I arrive and change the timezone in the (poor) Clock applet, they all 
show up correctly. This was available even on the otherwise lowly PIM 
apps in my old Sharp Zaurus.

The Clock applet also needs a boost: it can only handle two zones, home 
and away, which is not good.
