Well, I did notice that, but I think it still leaves the underlying question
unanswered: why is there no addressbook app icon?

I'll be happy to document my adventures on Symbian, of course.  At this
stage in the game, the missing pieces are the big obstacle.

(While we're on the subject: there's no clock icon either, which is kind of
important.  And why is there both an "office-calendar" _and_ an
"x-office-calendar" -- and why on earth are they different?)
