Does this mean that one day it will be integrated into OpenMoko ?

Yeah, I suck at icons, does anyone here have an idea on how to symbolize a
GPS? I'll have a look at openclipart to see if there's anything available.

Right. Is there some documentation available anywhere on the wiki about how
to make one's application desktop-friendly? I can't seem to find anything
relevant with "desktop" as my search term.

That looks cool :)

Thanks for the feedback, regards,
