I think the point is this: whoever *has* access to the documentation  
at OpenMoko shouldn't be working on *anything else* except for getting  
the features of this chip available to us in the public sphere. If  
you've got the docs, why work on something that a public community  
member can work on?  Work on the hard stuff - that which we can't get  
the docs for here in the open community - and push the hardware as  
much as possible.. please!
