I've struggled to install Advanced Configuration for App Launcher in recent days and it has occurred to me that a lot of the conflicts between patches could be avoided if HP-Palm were to create a framework for add-ons to webOS. I don't mean this to denigrate any Homebrew developer, far from it, I really love their work and probably wouldn't still be using my Palm Pre if it weren't for the work of the Homebrew community. But ultimately, when you are messing with the innards of an operating system, it helps to be able to turn to the authors of that OS for the tools to do so.
Palm needs to create an extension framework for webOS. We've already seen the things that can be accomplished through Homebrew patches and having an officially sanctioned API for creating extensions for webOS can only make things easier for developers. Think about it. No more Luna restarts! An easy way to manage conflicts! It might even make things easier for Palm and HP. They are talking about porting webOS to a wide variety of form factors and having an easy way to modify their OS can only help them in the long run.
