I'd be really happy if you have the patience and time to use SB2, it's not
going to be a walk in the park, but I'm definitely interested in sorting out
any possible issues with it.

As for maemo development on x86, you *should* be able to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
PKG_CONFIG_PATH & co so that you can run the stuff without scratchbox or
chroots. I've no idea why this hasn't been done already. Gnome has multiple
build systems that allow for this kind of thing.

So I'd go for SB2 for cross-compiling and a simple Garnome-style x86
development/testing environment. Both require quite a bit of work to get
going, but would result in a much improved end-result as compared to
current sb1 based thing. Effectively this would un-maemofy Maemo ;)
You might be able to use some of the end-result on your regular desktop.
Dunno if that's good or bad...
