Not that difficult. All you need is to modify the bootup scripts to
start only what's needed (check scripts in /etc/osso-af-init directory)
and make your own program that shows the icons. No source code changes
should be needed, just editing the shellscripts. I think there might
come some problems of not having maemo-af-desktop there but they are all
