i know all the reasoning, but the bottom line is: if you just want to
rotate screen and have larger keyboard it doesn't work and it has been
like that for a long time. restarting E every sinle time you want to
write an sms in landscape sounds probably good to some, not to me.
as with the keyboard, there have long been issues with subfolders on
desktop, another desktop altogether, full-screen with no keyboard etc.

i don't want to sound negative, but don't try to convince me or others
that it works the way it was intended. it doesn't. despite the issues, i
like illume and i really wish it is moved from the backburner to the
front one to get some TLC.
