Quick reply for just saying that here at bluendo we are very
interested in this topic, since we think that  mobile terminals will
become more and more the remote control of anything. Beside
infrastructure and APIs we'd like to focus on user interfaces too,
since we don't think that the approach of building an ad hoc ui for
any type of device is scalable; instead we think that the device
should be able to export the GUI to the mobile, with something similar
to ad hoc commands.
