I think we're speaking at two different levels of
All I expect from Chandler the application is a clean
divorce between the presentation layer and the process
layer. I'm using daemon in the traditional sense, a
program that runs continuously in the background to
perform tasks and handle events. If you look at some
the planned features, some are obvious, such as
peering calendar data, but some aren't at first blush,
such as network time syncing, and task scheduling. And
of course, new mail notification.
I think you're speaking of lower detail than that. I
for one don't care if the source is a gnarl of C++
worms, I'm not going to be reading it. I will,
however, be looking at the APIs for the daemon, and
probably doing some scripting with the inevitable
