Support for the openmoko could be a goal. But we probably need at least
2.6.32 to have a bootable kernel which supports SD cards. The 2.6.31
upcomming 2.6.31 will contain basic support up to the point where the
kernel boots on the phone, but the glamo driver to which the sd reader
is connected is not yet sent upstream.

If we have basic kernel support (including sd cards) debian-installer
support is fairly easy to do. It's basically almost done.
