Absolutely. :)

Praise kek!

Jokes aside, I think standardization and extension of a vital isn't bad, (I especially 
like the suggestion of a desktop version for the address management) but too many 
different attempts at the same thing in different projects may be confusing. It 
reminds me of the Composer / Editor discussion. If we do not commit to one 
implementation in particular in spite of many suggestions, nothing my get implemented 
in the end.
