I just downloaded the v1600003.201b with bonus directory structure.
Ignore my crack-addled muttering about a separate package.

rfk-palm can use the existing messages.h (where it is, if I drop a -Imumble
into the makefile); the rest of its source could go in a 'palm'-or-whatever
directory, like the debian foo, or in 'src' but it may confuse people to have
two basically non-overlapping sets of src there.

Not by design, perhaps I will put this in the bugs list

By possibly stupid design, in case someone is holding down movement buttons
(I don't know of any nice way to flush input).  Currently the datebook and
memopad buttons will dismiss the popup and the other buttons won't.
Someone feel free to tell me which is the 'right' thing to do.
