Forms. Lots and lots of forms.
I don't prefer it, but it gets around a lot of other problems. Seaside is
actually rather simple, easier than morphic (as it should be, given its
limitations), and I don't have to worry about building the C/S part, nor
do I need to be overly concerned if the N800 is not my final device (as I
suspect it won't be).
My plan, once I've gotten my basic framework down, was to move
bits-and-pieces to be native on the N800, and (with luck) exploit the
handwriting recognition in Genie (as you mentioned in January).
I'd actually enjoy doing the Nokia VM (C and I are old enemies, and I've
had fun with VMs a lot in the past), but I don't know if it's realistic.
(Otherwise I would've jumped in here sooner.) If I can manage to work it
in as part of the project I'm doing, it gets more realistic (as I'd be
getting paid for it :-)).
