You get my full agreement here. I have long wondered why everything
needs to be a separate process. In my opinion we need to have a lean
and mean (although visually highly appealing) combined

* calendar
* contacts
* dialer
* messages
* launcher

application. This will be _the_ main "phone" application and all features
of this application are instantaneously there.
