I actually didn't think about this as being competition to Wave. The
current implementation is much more narrowly scoped, but the grand
generic document store vision does bear a resemblance. I don't know how
far down that road the project will go. I don't want to lose mail client
functionality for the sake of being as generic as Wave (I haven't seen
any information on the subject, but I assume the translation to/from
email is lossy).
