This is something that we've been pushing for for a while. However,  
our goal was to integrate it with Downloads (h-a-m and  
downloads.maemo.org would be two interfaces to the same thing), it  
seems like you're discussing a more App Store-like approach with more  
gatekeeping by Nokia, though.[1] I'd _really_ like to see Nokia help  
set up a QA and certification system through maemo.org and Extras,  
rather than pulling them from us and running them through a separate  
certification process and pushing them through their own channels.

This is something we've been working towards on our own, but getting  
Nokia help in this (and not having them duplicate our efforts  
elsewhere) would be really wonderful.[2]
