It looks interesting, but doesn't seem optimized for a touchscreen
interface (mouse wheel zooms and left/middle/right pointer references)

The bitbake recipe would probably be pretty straightforward, and I would
give it a try, but OE is failing (angstrom: gpe-image) for me at GTK+ right
now...  I'll give it a try as soon as that is resolved.

I don't yet have a neo, but I could try it out on my gpe-based ipaq.
