I don't complain.
I just state what is provided by current projects, and what is not.
and yes: I want integration.
but not at the cost of having to run mysql servers on my single user desktop 
which proved more than once to be an unreliable beast and whatnot.
and I'm not alone with this experience.
mailinglists/forums are full of  posts from frustrated users who have been 
bitten.
exactly that is where trinity comes in: provide the well known, rock solid, 
snappy, lightweight, easy to maintain/backup kdepim from kde 3.5 on modern 
distros - well integrated with the rest of the DE/applications.
