There are currently no plans on how to do this, so suggestions are welcome.

opimd will store and retrieve that data but not present them, so paroli 
needs a front-end for this feature.

I thought about this for a while and for now I have to agree with some 
earlier comments it is just not within our reach, so I created a 
launcher application in paroli now. It can optionally be started and 
then it is a fully theme-able launcher screen.

Currently it comes with a clock and a top-bar used to close other paroli 
apps. I believe this will make it much easier to first develop 
applications and make paroli truly a daily use app before we go about 
integrating it.

to 1. The Clock is there.
to 2. Notifications can be "easily" put it. One that is already working 
is the current caller.
to 3. Included as well

I will update the webpages as soon as I can to include new screenshots 
and explain some code.

I also have a tutorial in the making explaining how to write a Hello 
World app for paroli.

How does this sound?
