I'll add a +1 to that, its something that will be needed for making the entire 
desktop location aware, allowing it to auto-adapt to where you are, and I 
don't just mean timezones or network settings.  It will also be a key 
component for the 'social desktop', facilitating social interactions based on 
proximity.  And a million other ideas that will blow peoples socks off.

Fame and fortune awaits :-)
