RE: mixing fruit and greens/veg?

Discussion going on at our Vegan meetup that you should not combine fruit with greens/veg. i usually put fruit in my green smoothy. (seems like apple is ok but no others). What do you think?
What is the reason given? There is a school of thought that doesn't mix 'types' of stuff at all - not vegan/vegetarian specifically, but rather don't have fruit with X, don't have veg with y, don't have dairy with z...wait at least whatever amount of time between eating these groups of food. I know someone who was doing this (not vegan) and it seemed like such a pain to have to check and say "Oh, I can have the salad now but I have to wait half an hour after I'm done before I can have an apple..." Had something to do with the way the body digests different types of food and efficient/inefficient digestion.
Seemed like a lot of work with little to show for it (or any major science behind it).
