While using GNOME 3.0 on my desktop now for a week I wanted to share my
thoughs on the UI. The problem in the current situation is that the
shell provides a nice chat integration but to start a new chat you have
to use the "Contact List" window of empathy which feels totally
out-of-place. It is also one of the windows you really don't want to see
in the overview.

So for 3.2 it would be great to totally replace the "Contact List"
window with a "People" (or whatever) tab in Activities. Of course all
the libfolks stuff to integrate e-mail contacts and other stuff is a
prerequirement here but it would be a good time for the designers now to
give a basic idea of the look and feel independant from the backend

What Daniel and Salamon mocked-up is certainly a nice start but I think
a dedicated window for it doesn't fit with the overall shell design
