hmm, ok. do we already know what the phone will have pre-installed?
maybe even some script language with bindings to one of the gui toolkit?

the last reimplementation I did used tcl/tk a few years ago. but all I 
need to have for the first version is access to the whole screen and 
copy images around. nifty sounds would be nice too :)
