I'm hoping for such a repository of pre-built packages as well.  I envision
your more advanced user of the phone would install/deinstall variations of our
creations, choosing dialer A or dialer B, based on their features, using a
well-designed on-device GUI package manager.

But actually doing development -on- the phone -- that seems quite ambitious.
Lacking a swap partition, being limited to 128M RAM and using flash that
eventually wears out -- such seems risky and would require a lot of patience.
 And using the screen keyboard for serious code development would be
difficult, for me, although perhaps a bluetooth keyboard would be fine.  I've
been checking them out.
