What email? There would be no email at all. Have you seen IOS working?
It is like development "in Rebol", "for Rebol". You can create custom
reblets, which help you to let project going, and better organised. No
email based system can replace it easily. And as for email - I work on 2
- 3 machines. When I download my email on one of them, it is not
available on another ones. IOS is different - it simply syncs - so where
you go ... your data go with you ...
Look, we are slowly but working on VID update. It would NEVER be
finished by email way. We already exchanged some 3000 msgs in conference
and as for me, at least 5000 messages in messenger. You need your
answers fast, not waiting for email to arrive. You would have to use IRC
or other kind of IM and then - where is your integration?
As I said - one of the drawbacks of IOS is its scalability. If it would
handle hundreds of active users rather than tens, it would be even
cooler experience ....
