I think what is extremely valuable is to show that a) our focus has
never been just one (or two) environments and b) our framework works
easily on every environment imaginable. In so far the past can inspire
the future. But what I am wondering is if it makes sense to move some
of the definitely expired applications on definitely expired platforms
to the developer section to show how our library etc can work
(I agree with candybar phones and GoBible staying around a bit longer)
and I would be in agreement to create GoBibles still longer if there
are requests. But I have not seen any requests for a long time.
