yes. i know. :) if its the sdl stuff for webos - then thats doable as its "in
the future" a supported mechanism for pre's. if its the fso reverse engineering
and making modem etc. work - then thats an anti-vendor port .. and will be of
limited value in the long run. as the vendor will never help you - if anyting
they will actively thwart you over time. vendors need to support such work and
consider at a minimum of adopting it in future for it to be viable.
