Hi all,

On a (slightly) related off-topic note, I'm about to purchase one of those
iPad ripoffs (zt180), and I'm curious to find out how far one can go without
Android on it. In particular, I suspect a suckless project is in order to:

1. Emulate the onscreen keyboard (at a lowish X level presumably, but an
ncurses gpm-style cli would be pretty super-rad).

2. Emulate all those other "touch screen" options, e.g., two finger pinches
and whatnot.

I guess first we'd need to get X running on the thing.
It'd be a shame to have to run the java driven android stuff to do all this.
