Hmm, I just ran it on a Neo and seems to work okay. The biggest problem
is that switching to the second set of displayed keys is awfully slow.
Apart from that it's only missing some optimizations of the layout.
(For example: Backspace absolutely needs to be a main key. Nobody needs
"^" as a main key.)

In order to run it on a Neo you need to install python-pygtk,
python-pygobject (might need ipkg install -force-overwrite since it
pulls in libc6-dev, but that's another story) and python-pycairo.
