This is something we've been working on at the homebrew mobile phone  
club for a while. Our project is called Jowles and is focused on  
creating an application architecture that provides both XML and DBUS  
interfaces to system services. One of our very old demos can be seen  
at http://hbmoblie.org/jowles/ . Keep in mind that it doesn't really  
do anything, it's only a demo.

Qooxdoo looks great, but seems to have some problems with WebKit/ 
Safari, though I'm sure that's probably easy to fix.

Since I know there are other people interested, I'll hurry up and put  
my notes in a reasonable form... We're having a meeting on Wednesday  
to discuss this (among other things.)
