I heartily agree.  A monolithic app doesn't make much sense; what does
my calendar have to do with my e-mail?  (From a user/object perspective,
not technical perspective.)  It makes sense to, if I want, just
concentrate on e-mail and not have the UI clutter and overhead that
calendar, tasks, etc. all have.
