As per the part about a mobile phone app, there are no plans for this at
the moment - but we could get much closer if we could create/use
components that would be applicable for both the desktop and mobile
apps. That way we wouldn't duplicate effort any more than we have to.

I would be willing to help chase this if we had folks interested in
contributing to the effort and who could help identify places where we
can use components that would work for both use cases.

Just thinking out loud, none of this represents anyone else's opinions.
