Smartphone port of squeak

I'm trying my hand at porting squeak to MS Smartphone 2003, which is
based on WINCE4.

I'm adapting the win32 squeak build, which makes the most sense;

Smartphone, however, DOES have a joystick but does NOT have a mouse or
mouse pointer. It does have a concept of tab-order and focus.

Is this going to be a dead loss? while faking a mouse pointer might be
worthwhile for some things, if smalltalk is useless without it, then it
is probably a waste of time; does smalltalk or the GUI used, have a
concept of focus? Or would these be a feature of something like
wxSqueak, which probably could be ported?


The other problem is, that although Smartphone supports sizeof(char)=1,
2 byte wchar_t is used for most API calls.
