Yes. Makes sense. But I think about autostarting them when you switch to these

See above.

You mean nepomuk activitiy application integration. And I think I know where 
this will happen, in Randa. But more about this at another time.

Is it or will it be possible to save and export activities? Then I could do 
some stuff. Otherwise, developing in this area. I don't know if I'm good 
enough already i.e. if I knew enough to work with the activity stuff (would be 
definitely in my area of interest as there is a connection to nepomuk).
