The point here is that for the GTA02, if the video hardware supports
hardware playback of H.264, we need a driver that allows us to take
advantage of that. You're right that it's a nonstarted on the
GTA01, but that's okay.

Actually Universal is dissing Apple by releasing non-DRM'd tunes
through Amazon and not the iTMS, so there's actually some good non-
DRM'd stuff that'll be available that way. If it could be
downloaded over the WiFi, that would be really neat, and something
that no other phone is likely to offer.

There are a lot of wicked cool things you can do without OSM working,
so I think focusing on OSM is just going to delay the things that are
easy to do. If it's done and available and easy, great, but it
needn't be a gating factor in doing cool stuff with the GPS.
