The point of my idea was not a "not-going-to-happen" Newton, but  
rather a project that would be technologically feasible and *could*  
possibly be put together if there were people interested in putting  
together the pieces & spending some time.

Unfortunately, it seems like the interest isn't really there, and I  
don't have the skills to do much of it myself.


PS:  I still hold out hope for an ePub -> NewtBook app... that  
shouldn't be too hard :-)
