I mostly agree with you, but about the gui, i'd like to add something that imho
should be taken into consideration.

Many users are using the shell but still want a nice UI. For example, i'm using
my gentoo box remotely most of the time (from my office workstation...), but i
really appreciate using Wanderlust for my mails : though i'm using it from a
secure shell, i still have a nice text-UI...

I know it's extra-work, and that it may not come at first, but could room be
made to allow someone (or maybe yourself) to easily add a text-UI at a later
stage ? Something like a core/ui architecture ?

So i am : imho, it really is too "overkill" a dependancy.

I don't have many knowledge concerning data management, but wouldn't berkdb be
a good choice, too ?

Anyway, it's really a good idea.

Good luck in your initiative !
