OK, Sivan and I are on the case. I can feel the ideas starting to flow :)

Cool. After having just a quick look, I can see that there is indeed 
some stuff that needs work.  I'll start by reading up on what other 
people around the globe are doing.

btw: GOK (Gnome On-screen Keyboard) seems to be completely broken in 
Ubuntu (sounder-9) It doesn't launch. I don't see it in bugzilla, so 
I'll add it in.  The gnome bugzilla also has some GOK bugs, but AFAICT, 
not this one, so it looks ubuntu-specific.
