Nice idea, done:

> * unable to connect wifi wpa2-psk

Was is working in some older versions? It can be bug either in 
wpa_supplicatant or in qmoko wifi plugin that creates configuration for 
wpa_supplicant. Does it work when you setup wpa_supplicant from command line? 
I am trying to connect WPA2-psk here and it does not work too :(

IIRC it crashed here to, but after restart it was ok.

Hmm i am trying to keep the image as small as possible. I'd rather prefer if 
people could install they favourite apps with apt-get.

Kernel should not print anything except serious errors. That should be fixed in 
kernel instead. Do you know which message did you see?

Should be fixed in sources, but i didnt want to recompile just because of this, 
so it should be ok for next release.

I used to partition my SD card like:

p1 for vfat
p2 for qtmoko
p3 for android/SHR
p4 for swap

I dont know if it's good idea to change this scheme. You can always make p3 
and p4 partitions to match this scheme.

IIRC you can use ext4 - it's compiled in kernel. Btrfs could be nice, but i 
dont know if it makes sence now - e.g. if it performs good on FR. Unless 
someone benchmarks it and proves that it works good on FR i'd like to keep 
support only for ext2/ext3/ext4.
