Well, I much appreciate your work and your openness with community, 
unfortunately I can't say the same about Openmoko in this occasion since 
this should be an Open company and so I'd have appreciated it more if 
the decision would have been debated before with developers and active 
part of community (= people writing code) in public lists.
And I say this also if I love the new Efl + Qt implementation!

This is not a flame, just a small disappoint about some "not-so-open" 
ways of Openmoko...
