I'm certainly sure it would. Remember, "just finishing" usually means "the 
remaining 80% of the work, after the first 80% has been done". =)

I haven't looked at PMC's status very recently, though. So it might be 19%, 
81%, or anything in that range.

(And yes, phear my 133y math skills. ;-))

For emails, that's already possible. Just add a org.kde.emailnotifier (Lion 
Mail actually) email collection to your activities, and make it show the 
folders you want to. It's built with that in mind, and works completely 
transparently (i.e. Lion Mail doesn't even *know* about activities).
