Hi Pekka,

I'm still interested to hear your position here. If writing the full
response is still prohibitive, could you maybe just confirm whether
your stance is about the technical nuts and bolts of how (or whether)
the IVI shell can make a conforming implementation of the desktop
shell APIs, or whether you just think it's wrong-headed for an IVI
system to attempt to use code that was developed with the nominal
purpose of showing on a desktop system.
