Well... I would rather let a bit more freedom to the team :

if you (as in "the team which will make the iFoan obsolete") think that
breaking useability or functionality or anything else could serve the
cause : do it !

Please decide your roadmap and make it public !

I (personnally) don't care if I am not able to use my Neo as a phone (and
anything else possible) for 2-3-4-5 months : I have a working phone. BUT,
what I would like to know is _when_  I will get _what_ functionality.

I you think that breaking the whole stuff for a moment will serve a precise
goal, please do it !
