I agree with the point that the contribution of all devs to
Mail/Contacts development will bring TB++ sooner to a usable point in
the first place. But I think at the end TB users will expect a Calendar
(and maybe chat) integration. So, what about a three step plan? First
step, bundle all devs to bring Mail/Contacts working and release this as
TB++ v1.0. Second step, bundle all devs to integrate Calendar/Chat into
TB++ and release it as TB++ v2.0. And than split the teams to separatly
maintain and fix bugs in Mail/Contacts/Calendar/Chat and release this as
TB++ v2.5.
