I agree with the functionality such as a system wide mail client, a
system wide spell checker.  I guess I spent too much time with Debian in
which they have those things.  But I agree we need something best in
class to address those concerns. 

Since I am not that familiar with how and what was packaged with solaris
through the years I might be expecting too much. I guess that is
something we can hash out in the future.  I must admit that if I want to
use rmail, or set root mail to a user that would be nice without having
to know a ton of solaris, or dig deep into the manuals just for some
basic system wide settings.  Even the OpenSolaris Bible has limited
informaton on some of those topics I would assume I would have to go
deep into the sun admin manuals to find out some of those things.
