Absolutely.  And as already mentioned, I'd like to extend it further
downstream and actually have distro people. Not tons, but to get the
discussion going about what works for them and in particular how (if?)
we could integrate those closer.

Android, of course, being the big elephant in the room. We're not
going to solve it, but at least have somebody there talking about
_their_ pain points.
