This raises the interesting problem of how to deal with nasty people 
with openmoko phones.

May a 'web of niceness' be an idea?
Something like: With each neo, you get a public/private key, signed by

Someone sets their picture to be goatse (a not work safe image), you say 
'this person is annoying'.

If they are annoying enough, other users may refuse to trust them for 
various purposes.
