For example, change UI completely, like add animated panels, which will  
widgets/apps, make own virtual desktop system etc. As I understand, it's  
but I should rewrite core UI libraries, yes? Because on some other Nokia  
smartphones it's
possible to write homescreen plugins without any changes in the system
