You mean OpenMobile's ACL for the Touchpad?

What they are trying to do is rig Android's Dalvik (Java) Virtual Machine to use the webOS system APIs for Bluetooth, notification, vibrate, etc., so that Android apps running under it would have access to those OS features.

Once that's done, it'll be available for $30 apiece and support Gingerbread-level apps. It will have to be installed over Preware or sideloaded.

It won't affect the Android partition on the Touchpad.

The Android Compatibility Layer is intended to provide a method of running Android applications under weOS, so yes it is just for Android apps.

there will still be a need even if acl gets released as acl doesnt have gfx acceleration and is amazingly slow for gfx intensive stuff, so if your into games/3d stuff then youd also want to keep cm10, acl will be fine for more basic apps/less gfx intensive stuff ofc.

This will not dual boot like CM7/9/10, this is a PDK app that runs services and installable modules (kernel runtime) during webOS bootup...

CM7/9/10, are a full install of Android (reboot), no webOS...
ACL is Android 2.3.x apps running in a jailed PDK app along webOS apps under the webOS kernel.

No the Pre3 has a different kernel, although someone can change the installable modules (like the Go) to match the Pre3 kernels name, I suspect, that as the kernel is 2.6.32.9 and the touchpad is 2.6.35 that that it will not be compatible...

I have tested this on the Pre2 and the Pre2 kernel which is 2.6.24 does not have the right symbols to load the installable modules...

I had some hope this would solve some Pre 3 insane desire to have items ...oh well !!
