Improved Android Security
Martin Android devices ask users to confirm the permissions an application will be able to use as a one-off, at install-time. The idea here would be to 'wrap' applications in a virtual environment, and allow run-time permission granting – with the option of simply returning fake/empty data to applications.
Custom apt packages
Martin, Jay Sometimes it's handy to patch an apt package with customizations and/or fixes - but these may not be accepted upstream before updates are available. The goal here would be to allow an 'overlay' system to compile updated versions from source, but apply any local customizations transparently.
