Hello Dave,

at Openmoko we use the enlightenment window manager with a special module 
called illume. This will provide the launcher, clock, gadgets. So our "qpe" 
binary is built in a way that the normal launcher is not shown. These changes 
are mostly done in a #ifdef ILLUME_LAUNCHER block throughout the sourcecode.
This should be defined somewhere in devices/ficgta01 (grep) the only thing 
that could break is the change to the .pro file in src/server as a lot of was 
changed unconditionally (git-log will tell you).

So my environment consists out of:
	- Xephyr
	- enlightenment with the illume profile
	- Qtopia
