I just figured out recently that there are actually companies making
money (and hiring software-developers) developing Apps for Android
phones and similar devices for their paying clients. Maybe this could be
a path for PicoLisp to become more commercial? 

If (and only if ;) its easy to develop and run PicoLisp apps on Android,
and development is equally or more efficient with PicoLisp than with
Java, people (= hiring companies and their end-users, or paying clients)
might not care about the underlying technology?
