Is there much interest in a build which supports Windows CE devices? 

I recently released an updated version of PythonCE which has better Windows Mobile 
support (for smartphones and newer WM6 devices) - 

At one stage I had developed further patches to PythonCE which meant that the 
single executable/cab file would run on basically anything running Windows CE 4.2 
or above without the need for dummy agyshells etc. In my biased opinion this was a 
better approach than using a dummy agyshell.dll because it meant the executable 
could detect it was running in a different environment and tweak the menu layouts 
etc to give a better fit. 

The patches have since been lost due to me loosing access to a raw Windows CE 
powered device to test on. 

I am looking at ways to drum up development support for PythonCE. How many people 
are using PythonCE on a Windows CE device?
