Maemo split & MCE support

The main holdout to submitting the qt egg back into chicken have been the Maemo bits that crept in. Now all of that code has been moved into its own, chicken-maemo, egg so hopefully I’ll get around to submitting diffs against svn to the list later today.

With Maemo having its own egg I don’t feel bad extending adding in support for more of the basic infrastructure anymore. Now we have a full set of bindings to MCE over DBus, aside from the stackable windows, notes, banners, and orientation control that we had before. This means accelerometer data, calling, vibrator support, locking various aspects of the device, using the leds, and more. Sadly I still haven’t figured out how you generate documentation for eggs.

I’ve also built my first app that will see real-world usage. My advisor is a session chair ICRA and he wanted an application to manage speaker time during it (they’ve got this 12 (talk) + 2 (questions) +1 (cleanup) minute format). This also brought up an interesting problem of how device rotation is going to work when the guy needs to change its layout, I’ll have to investigate further. Now that the MCE bindings exist, I should add things like vibration and manging the screen state. Still, it’s not a bad app for an hour of work and it’s a decent demo so it lives in the chicken-n900 repository as test4. Obligatory screenshots follow.
