Thanks to you too, Shelan. You've done a great job with the design,
code and publicizing your plans so that the community could offer
feedback. I'm looking forward to using mobile templates on my blog
myself. It was a pleasure to work with you and to talk via Skype on
many summer Fridays.

I'm working now on merging your changes into Roller trunk, and taking
a close look at each change. I'd like to see a Roller 5.1 release with
this new feature and some bug fixes, so I'll also write up issues for
the remaining work to be done.

Thanks again Shelan! and thanks to Google Summer of Code as well.
