I am using syncevolution all the time - it is working fantastic - why should
I give up something that is working ... and it is not made out of metal
that rust.

I think your input is precious. Thank you!

I want just to mention that for the beginning it is important to save what
we have now and for the future we can consider all these complex use cases,

and useful - perhaps with limitted functionality, than great ideas and
nothing useful.
