First of all, it's not _my_ game. It was started by Ulf Ekström and Eero
Tamminen, I joined the project well after version pre6a was released.

Regarding my "tech demo" statements, I do not want to raise expectations
that can't be fulfilled. Airstrike did progress much, it changed a lot
since pre6a. While pre6a is a simple game, the svn version allows for
much more complex gameplay, but IMHO lacks the finishing touches to make
it a _game_.

Could be possible. Airstrike uses a fixed resolution of 800x600, so the
grafics would need to be converted at least. And it uses floating point
calculations, I don't expect Openmoko to support this. So I would say
that some work is needed to do it, but even cell phones should be fast

Patches are always welcome, preferably against the svn version. ;-)

Additionally, algorithms from the NSA are considered a sort of alien
technology: they come from a superior race with no explanations.
