Several apps are closer than you are suggesting. What we need is
momentum being built not the complete opposite.

A set of separate tools can never be a replacement (except with a

comparisons and the very foggy ideas what some commercial apps actually
offer are damn frustrating. Would surprise me to read something *new*.
