I agree that the iOS4 approach is an improvement on no multi-tasking at all, but it still fails to do something that Symbian has been doing for, well, forever really.

I'm sure that there will be numerous use cases where the iOS4 approach is still too limited; this is not being a zealot, it's being realistic....
Have you read the fact sheet on iOS4 and how it will handle multi-tasking? By your answers it does not appear you know exactly what you are talking about in this regard.
