I'm new here, I have an OpenMoko on order and hope to do some  
development. I'll contribute ideas and bug reports at the least.

  I'm not sure I've ever used a touch screen mobile device that  
caters for left handed people. On the whole there aren't many issues  
with using devices left handed, so adding the support is easy.

The main problem is scrollbars, when they're on the right dragging  
the scrollbar left handed results in your hand covering the screen so  
you can't see what you are doing. So having the option of scrollbars  
on the left would be useful.

Ideally if you implement such features in the interface and not per  
application then it will all be transparent and less work will need  
to be done.
