Currently our vision is the one Matthias set out for us in the initial 
starting of KDE mail. So we have a vision which served us for 20 years. It 
worked for us for about 15 years (didn't fit mobile). So I think any vision we 
come up to replace the existing one should aim for helping us for at least the 
next 15 years including future technology transitions.
