Yes, same here. In my opinion, even if no Sugar code could be directly
reused, having another project using the same technologies (cairo,
gtk+, python, etc) in low-power hardware and sharing some of the new
HCI proposals could be very beneficial for us.

As an aside, imagine if people could use the same tools/skills to
develop software for their brother's XO and their family's mobile.
