[maemo-users] [maemo-users] glurp: New Port, need help

Hi, I recently discovered the joys of the Music Player Daemon (MPD; 
http://www.musicpd.org/) and additionally I've discovered an ideal client to 
be ported to the Nokia 770--it's called glurp 
(http://www.musicpd.org/glurp.shtml). I've compiled it in scratchbox and it 
runs on my device, but I would like to do a proper port, utilizing IAP 
connectivity, the hard keys, and all that. To that end, I've tried following 
the "port existing application" tutorial on maemo.org, but there is a major 
difference between Gaim and Glurp--Glurp uses Glade to do it's GUI. I'm 
getting hung up on what kind of changes might be required to Glurp's source 
code to integrate it into Maemo. I tried doing the other stuff (.desktop 
file; dbus .service file; LD_PRELOAD for IAP) without changing the source 
code, but that didn't work--presumably because there was no real D-BUS 
service for Glurp--it either wouldn't start or closed shortly after 
launching. Any tips on porting a Glade app to Maemo would be greatly
