Use of Categories | General "Real" World Uses

I've been using the Firebird extension of the Mozilla Calendar and I 
like it better than my use of Outlook 2000 in terms of layout and open 
standard file format. Much thanks to the people who keep this project 
moving forward.

I read somewhere in bugzilla (on the topic of Categories) that the first 
priority was to get Category functionality working, and then MAYBE think 
about implementing the ability to assign multiple categories to a single 
task/appointment/et cetera (whatever the proper nomenclature is for 
dated items input by the user and acted upon as an "object" ...)

What is the current thinking on the ability to use multiple categories 
on a single item? Is there a development roadmap for Sunbird? If so, is 
this functionality on the roadmap? If it is on the map, can anyone guess 
at a likely time frame, whether in weeks, months or years?

Personally, I'd like to see something similar to the "virtual" folders 
thing I saw in this Apple application a friend showed me - I think it 
was iCal, but might have been the mail program or the address book.

I found the ability to assign multiple categories to items VERY useful 
in Outlook. And using the KeySuite app for the Palm OS, this has worked 
extremely well on my PDA also.

As I figure out how to use Mozilla with my Palm OS device, multiple 
categories will become almost a necessity. At a great inconvenience to 
myself, I have refused to load Microsoft Office on my laptop. I am 
solely relying on Thunderbird, Firebird, Sunbird and Open Office. I do 
not want to install Outlook, but I'm about to get busy with my clients 
and will need some HEAVY duty flexibility (and ease of use) from my 
Time-Client management programs.

Hate to be so "me" centered, my thinking here is that if enough people 
share how they are using Sunbird in a "real" world environment, it might 
help. Dunno. Hope so.

RFC: interactions between "use bytes", "use locale", and "use feature 'unicode_strings'
I am waiting for blead to reopen before I submit a patch for extending feature unicode_strings to matching \s, and \w. In documenting it, it occurred to me that the existing implementation is wrong, along with the existing interaction between use bytes and use locale. To refresh your memory, "use feature 'unicode_strings'" is supposed to mean that even non-utf8 data is to be considered to have Unicode semantics. In practice, this only affects the characters from 128-255. It is new in 5.12, and is implemented there only on functions that change case, such a...

Using "+" or "||"
Using SQLAnywhere 5.5.04, I've gotten into the habit of using "||" in ISQL to indicate a string concatenation. I needed to paste my SQL statement into the PowerBuilder script painter for some embedded SQL, and PB didn't like the "||" very much at all. I changed it to "+" and it seems to be ok. Do these two operators indicate ~exactly~ the same thing? moin, afaik these two's are not the same! if you're using "||" and any term is NULL then in the resultstring the term will be ignored if you use "+" then the resu...

Using "using"
In C#, when instantiating objects, it seems like there are two choices; 1) fully specify the hierarchy (i.e. System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection) or 2) placing a using statement (i.e using System.Data.SqlClient;) so you can using the more direct reference (in this case "SqlConnection"). What are the factors involved with deciding to use a using statement versus fully referencing everything in the code? using is just a shortcut so that you don't have to write the entire namespace out for each instantiation.  The drawback is that someone reading your code may not immediat...

Using group to give "edit components" rights and "use for bugs"
I have a product, and I want to give the rights to adminster that product (edit components and so on) to another person. According to the documentation (3.4.4, 3.15), using a group seems to be the proper way to do this, so I created a group for the purpose. Now, the documentation says (section 3.4.4) that "After selecting the "Edit Group Access Controls" link from the "Edit Product" page, a table containing all user-defined groups for this Bugzilla installation is displayed.". So, I did select "Edit Group Access Controls" for the product, and...

What to use instead of "cin" and "cout" which VCL doesn't use
I want to ask the user their name which I will then put on a label. There may be a better way but in the meantime I have used a TextOut message to Ask for their name and then put a memo box at the end of the sentence, which I find they can type into, I think. Question is How can I get or where to I find what they typed so I can put it in my label storage. I notice that there is a "Lines" property for Memo that say TString and if you click on it you get a code editor. I have been reading for days but I can figure out where to go from here. Any help would be greatly apprecia...
