The default config doesn't make much sense to me, but I'm starting to 
figure out how to beat it into submission (I wanted the "big" scroll on 
the 5-way; that's easily possible and I have it now, but not the default).

Yes, a good range of things.  I've been mostly using iSilo, but that's a 
proprietary format (best I found for the Palm long ago, and mostly 
stayed best so I stayed with it, but I prefer open software).
