So is there anyone but yourself that is an "active" developer?  I will probably 
not need help doing the port.   I would like another set of eyes to review the 
merge changes, mainly the parts Known to be vital.  As of now, I only have to 
get through /Modules which has tons of changes and is going to be quite an 
effort indeed.

Ultimately, I would like to see both 2.6 and 3k work on my phone :-)  First 
things first I figure... see how I do with 2.6, release to the community and 
let them decide if it's any good.  If it is, I will go ahead and do 3k, which 
will be substantially more work but fun nevertheless.
