Problem with OZ is that at least in its default Opie-based incarnation,
it barely fits in 32MB of RAM, and will definitely not run in 16MB,
which excludes most available 820's from running it.
I don't know whether or not twiddling its configuration
or changing the (default) UI could help.
16MB and no swap will be tight whatever we do, anyway.
[We should have standard provisions for swap over network when available.]

PS: in my last email, I failed to mention Gentoo for Zaurus,
that forked from Cacko.
