If someone has put together a decent scheme for a UI with only a
touchscreen, it should serve as inspiration, not repulsion.
(Multitouch is irrelevant here--we can have an excellent,
well-engineered UI without it)

I tried it and was surprised that it mostly works. The brushed-metal
background needs to be made wider so it doesn't tile and some apps
need tuning. It's even more obvious the split
list-on-top-details-on-bottom idea is not going to work.

I think a simplified keyboard would just barely fit. The INdT guys
have played around with a correctable edje keyboard

I've heard dasher is good once you practice but I've tried and I don't
have the patience.

that would be great
