Hi Karl,

Just wondering, if you use python, why do you implement the parser from
scratch rather than just copying the library from the zim source?

To me that would be the quickest way forward, use the existing zim code for
the backend and wrap with an android specific frontend.

If there are technical reasons why this is difficult, please let me know so
I can help to make the backend usuable on android as well.

Regards,

Jaap
