    How would you propose to take this collection of highly complex, mature projects, each with its own separate development community, and bring them together into a suite in this manner?

    From what you're describing, it would seem to require forking all these projects and rebuilding them on multiple levels.

    You've got a gnome app for most things. Bring more apps into the gnome fold. Gnumeric, Abiword, Dia, Planner, etc. You've got the same thing on the KDE side but less stable. Arguably some better software, but not as much and not as widely used.

    What is being described would be more like using unified icons between a few projects... I don't know that it would require a really *huge* amount of hacking, though it wouldn't be easy either. Designing suitable symbols for use would probably be the hardest thing, I think.

    Of course, I could be entirely wrong.
