Great work, both you and Albin! :)

Thanks. I'll now also remove foxtrotgps from pkg-fso, since it has
been uploaded to official archives by Daniel.

I've had the idea to check how to increase the tiny font size there
which is probably hard-coded so that it looks fine on SHR, but so far
haven't found the place and I'm quite lost in the E world. Intone
seems to be quite hardcoded for Openmoko use anyway (doesn't start on
i386), so it wouldn't hurt if it would be optimized for FR usage. At
the same time, the gradients could be considered to be removed, if it
increases the scrolling speed a lot.

Thanks for the update.
