+1 Waiting for you to branch it off. :-) I'd like to discuss it too.

TBH, when DXS was being developed in a separate branch, we kept the
philosophy of supporting generic clients (PC's, laptops, anything with a
standard browser), and made some design decisions accordingly (like the
authserver). However, as of now, I'd say the XSCE supports XO's slightly
better than it does generic clients, but we shouldn't be locking the XSCE
to the XO.

As for tablet support specifically, I don't know what the specifics of
those would look like (maybe better touch/mobile websites).

Happy to see this discussion take place... (Another one might be XSCE-Sugar
