The N900 ones are quite good.  But, of course, there are a few differences 
from GPE (better and worse).

I certainly intend to issue new versions with accumulated bugfixes (I have 
fixed some common bugs while doing the N900 port).  And I intend to continue 
supporting the chinook/diablo version for some time to come.  But that 
probably only means fixing major bugs.

Sorry, no plans for that.  But if you can persuade someone to create a patch I 
would be happy to include it.
