Look in to optimizing blocks somewhat, too - allow for block-level 
caching. Provide block data as a feed of some sort?

Not fully in scope for this ticket, but ideally we'll have 
infrastructure on the Horde side that would make implementing widgets 
for other systems (both desktop and web based) easy.

Create a dashboard widget that can display a configurable Horde_Block.

Even better might be a widget generator that generates customized 
widgets, instead of the user having to choose? Want to allow multiple 
widget instances.



Also, create a "cocoa" Horde theme that is automatically used in the 
dashboard widget to give a nice look+feel to match the rest of the 
Apple UI.

Code so far, including a Keychain plugin for storing passwords, is in 
the hatchery in git.
