Once we solve this: http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/28 I think we are
pretty well. I already had it in my todo list.

Other issues to check are dependencies on HAL and OHM, though those
should be pretty self contained and easy to fall back on something
else if those components are not available, though both are being
considered for inclusion into the GNOME Mobile platform.

Is there any hw platform for which already exists a linux distro with
all the GNOME Mobile components and for which we want Sugar ported to?
