You ROCK! Your updates to FBReader look fantastic and work flawlessly. I 
was wanting to have a good reader for the Openmoko for some time. I 
tried out FBreader but found that the line spacing is fubar.  I started 
learning about crosscompiling, mokomakefile, toolchain, bitbake, 
openembedded, openmoko, angstrom etc., trying to make sense of how to 
develop for Openmoko but hadn't been successful yet.  You will find that 
the line spacing issue has been resolved in more recent builds. (Can't 
remember off hand which one.) In the meantime I am going to enjoy your 

Thanks much.
