I agree, I think the ONLY thing a separate app could add, would be that it could run hidden and not show in the dock, or when CMD-Tabbing.

Now, it just occurred to me, that what Omni may be able to do, would be to have a small deamon that launches at startup and listens for the OF quickentry keyboard shortcut (or clipping or whatever). When this happens, OF could launch as a hidden app (no dock icon). When a user then sends OF a Launch event by double clicking it, it could then appear to launch, but would really just become un-hidden. (I don't mean a simple hide like you can do now, but a run as a background app).

A quit event would still quit, but the listener would stay open to repeat as above.

Not sure what technical hurdles would need to be dealt with, but it would seem to resolve this issue (I personally don't mind it open all the time, but I have 2GB)

I agree that quick entry should work in some fashion without requiring omnifocus to be open. The command shortcut should be universal for the inbox to do it's job of capturing information anytime, anywhere.

I still don't see the value in running an independent Quick Entry app. Why not just keep OmniFocus running all the time, especially if a separate app consumes the same amount of system resources? Running OmniFocus all the time isn't that costly, at least not on my machine. If it is on yours, you should seriously consider increasing the amount of RAM installed.
