Inconsistent and confusing UI in openmoko apps

The UI for openmoko apps is terribly inconsistant, especially the way to exit
them, some apps have an 'exit' menu entry, others 'close', 'hide', or no such
thing at all!

Compare the menus for openmoko-dates and openmoko-contacts to see what I mean.

Agreed. Exit and Help need to be part of the Application Menu. "Exit" always
needs to be called so, no matter whether the application internally is closing,
hiding, or exiting (sic!)

This should be fixed in the openmoko-libs

I disagree. This should be fixed by having clear guidelines describing the
OpenMoko? style, and then fixing the applications that do not conform.
