Ouch, this is insane... in order to support at least MacOSX, Windows
and Linux (Qt and Gtk) you need 4 different GUI toolkits, if you want
to support 3 platforms (PPC, x86, ARM) you need 4 x 3 = 12  binaries
to test. Ok, you could have python or other platform independent core,
but GUI would still be the same trouble, so 4 binaries to test.

And all of this is local access.. but how to let you configure
770/n800 from PC? plug usb and you loose mmc, wifi would still require
a daemon...

As willian said, the problem still remain... we're fixing the problem
in the wrong area.

Maemo is broken: it traps "socket()" calls instead of "connect()", why?
