Full screen is how paroli is intended to be used. It will not be a WM,
launcher etc. It will still co-exist quite nicely with illume and that
is how I've been running it for the last few days. Providing a stable
phone platform is what paroli is about.

Once the UI spec is published it should become a little clearer.
