well, um, I just had a thought on this too... I don't know about other
places, but in the US the telco operators make a sizeable chunk of change on
ringtones, if this functionality is straight out of the box, the chances
that we're going to get picked up by a major operator just hit nil (I'm
having nightmare visions of crippled neos being offered) maybe, for the good
of the project, this should be developed outside of the openmoko project...
Once the phone gets picked up by operators, then we can go big with this
feature (yeah, I think it could be a killer app for a phone as long as the
interface to create a ringtone rocks(joe and suzy consumer aren't going to
want to deal with frequency/duration data))
