as long as aux reliably produces a keyboard, that's no hindrance, isn't it?

well, zhone is intended to run standalone.
it would probably helpful, if someone could split it up in separate parts  
(the 4 apps, the battery and the gsm meter, a casing that holds teh all  
thus anybody could use the parts sensible to him/her and zhone would be  
still like one app for those who need it (developers that use zhone for  
testing and those willing to live with the limitations).
