tools which may or may not be accessible.
I might of course be entirely wrong, and it may be that this is much easier
to do than it sounds, but I would suggest that you get some idea of how much
time, trouble and energy each option will take, as well as how much overall
desire for each is before getting commited to what could be a hugely complex
As I said, this isn't a dig at either Mac or Iphone users, just a note that
I'd not like to see quentin have the same shenanigans in developement that
