No need to boot two systems.

The way I originally ported Qtopia to the neo was putting Qtopia on the
sd, symlinking /opt/Qtopia to that, stopping gsmd and all the x-server,
and running the qtopia startup script.

This probably could be a choice at init time, or some 'app' in 
Neo/Qtopia that
does this.
