Wow. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for !
Anyone looking for this (David Whyte !) should take a look at Subsonic.
The two drawbacks I see are 1) another large daemon running on the backend,
and 2) they have an odd model of wanting domains for the Android apps to
function. But, as open-source goes this is a well done application.
Reading through the forums, it looks like the direction the Android app is
going is almost exactly what I had outlined in my first proposal.
Matt -- thanks for this pointer !
