     This was previously reviewed and declined on the following grounds:
     
        The communications API to the Palm Pilot was not exactly 
     available.
        It wasn't clear that the communication was bidirectional.
        The Palm Pilot running the client would immediately drain its 
     battery unless plugged into the wall, somewhat defeating the purpose 
     of a palmtop.
        *The* language of the Pilot was Forth and no one had written a 
     Forth client at the time.  This probably hasn't changed.
     
        If there are updates on these points, then the client for Pilot 
     may be feasible.

Has there been any consideration of building a Palm Pilot client? It 
contains a Motorola 68328 cpu, so it may be able to run the Macintosh 
version, with minimal changes.
     
There is a platform that has a lot of idle time. Now all we need it a way 
to convince the "PIM" crowd to install it (maybe as part of an autodialer 
app?).
