This is exactly what I was saying about the PalmOS X Linux PDAs... But
unfortunately, here --- and I guess it is something global --- PalmOS
powered PDAs are the easiest to be found...

there's nothing suitable for PalmOS in the Python realm... I think if I
want something I have to go the C or Java way... unfortunately. On the
other hand, there's a Lua port for it... who knows?
