It's just not that simple. I briefly explained the problems here


 - The technical problems involve managing N times M times P

 - There might be really nasty Terms Of Service issues

 - I expect 3.2 to only support Google, Yahoo providers

 - I expect 3.2 to only support Mail and Calendar services

After 3.2 we can add more providers and more kinds of services. I'm
still working on this.
