Just one, very little suggestion. It will be great if you add CRC 
checksums to the compile instructions of downloaded symbian packages. 
Why? For example, Two days ago I've downloaded package and then after 
update I don't know it is for 32 or 64 bit systems.
Keep your great work! I've never compiled anything but I still trying to 
do that with loadstone and I hope it will be successful someday, somehow...
Best regards,
