#18 A suite can consist of independent parts too

Just because the *birds are separate apps doesn't mean they can't be bundled together as a "sweet". Microsoft Office is a suite, yet that is a collection separate applications and components. I for one can't wait for them to dump the monolithic app and replace it with a suite of separate applications. Right now though, the independent parts aren't ready. Having everything in one single process space was a stupid decision when Netscape made it all those years ago... repeating that mistake with the open source reimplementation beggars belief.
