It would be great to have OpenLayers work transparently in multiple 
environments.  I think it might make sense to revisit the browser event 
handling stuff at a lower level rather than trying to push IOL (as it is 
currently designed) in over top.

Whit is no longer at OpenGeo, but we're certainly interested in working 
on OL improvements for mobile clients.
