Luckily, there is no need to write the user app in these cases, just

On the Mac, the iSync software will already do what is wanted provided
someone "teaches" iSync about OpenMoko. Mac users are used to using
iSync with their PDAs and phones.

On Windows, one wants to produce an appropriate hack for Outlook since
on Windows that's more or less the only PIM that matters.
