Hi Mickey,

Could you let us know who will be responsible for writing this API? 
Another question I had related to the sounds, but also to 
openmoko-today, is what sort of "settings" application is planned? How 
will users be able to change their ring tone or phone background? I 
haven't seen any mockups or pages in the wiki for this.
