I was going to suggest the same when I first read this message, but
sometimes, someone's spouse or secretary might want to keep the schedule 'in
sync', i.e. on two PDA's. Sometimes, people want a secondary PDA as a backup
plan. This proves difficult owing to conflicts and record counts that are
inconsistent. For most scenarios, separate user accounts (profiles) should
be standard.
