NetworkManager I think is a perfect example of this. It would be good to have a defined interface to access PIM info, make calls etc. I believe LiPS has been set up to do just that. So perhaps it would be better to make moth OpenMoko & Qtopia PE LiPS complient. I heard that the LiPS forum hired a load of GPE PE developers to develop a reference implementation. It might be worth looking at GPE PE and lifting some of the standardised bits. I don't know, perhaps this is happening already?
I asked this question on the G(PE)^2 listserv - both projects started 
very close in time to each other, have different backing and slightly 
different goals, but there is reasonable overlap and it is my 
understanding from one of the core G(PE)^2 members that they are working 
with the openmoko team to collaborate as much as possible.  I don't 
really have any detail beyond that.
